Note:

The 2 months period will give time for PFT trustees to review, ask for clarifications and/or missing info, discuss and process the grant application before decisions are made. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible, so trustees can review the application and check completeness. For complete, high quality applications the 2 month period may not be needed and the decision can be forwarded to the applicant earlier.
