Details about the funding
No payment can take place until you have submitted the final accounts for the project, as well as documentation demonstrating how you credited Koda Kultur.
This grant takes the form of a so-called deficit guarantee. This means that if the project generates enough income to cover its expenses, no funds will be paid out.
If you wish to make changes to how the funding is used, this requires permission from the committee that awarded the grant. Unless otherwise agreed, the grant will automatically lapse if the project applied for is not completed within two years.
When can I expect a reply?
Your reply will be no later than two months after the deadline.
