In addition to the ordinary grant awarded each year, local institutes may also apply for a secondary grant, a special grant. This is to cover planned exceptional expenditure that cannot be met by the ordinary grant.
These are awarded on a case-by-case basis and provided as a one-off payment. As stated, special grants are only awarded for exceptional expenditure, e.g. the development of your CPD programme.
Please note that special grants will not be awarded to cover institute staff and office costs.
Before submitting a special grant application, local institutes should firstly assess the level of accumulated reserves to ensure these do not exceed 12 months operating costs.
To apply for a special grant, local institutes need to submit a written application, including both special grant applications forms: A and B. The latter will include a full breakdown of your local institute’s financial accounts. Forms and guidance notes can be found below.
All applications need to be submitted to the CII by Friday 28 September 2018 via firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
