We review each applicant’s proposal on its own merits but we sometimes require additional information to assess a proposal based on its individual characteristics; such information may not be requested at the beginning because it will not necessarily apply to every proposal.
First you need to create an account. This should take a few minutes to complete. Have the following information to hand before you start your application:
When you have registered, you will receive an email to activate your account.
When you have completed Step 1, you will receive an email with a link to confirm your email address and continue your application.
Confirm the registration by clicking on the link in the confirmation email.
Please note that you will not be able to progress with your application until you have responded to this email by clicking on the link.
Once your account has been verified, you will be able to make an application.
When you have completed Step 2, you will be able to complete an application form by logging into your account.
During the application process you will have the option to save and come back to it at a later time.
You will need to have the following documents ready to upload:
* Please use the resources page for templates and guidance for the listed documents
Please make sure that you submit the most recent versions of your NEA Business Plan/Cash Flow forecast as these form part of the assessment. In addition, you may be asked for further information at a later stage.
Once you have uploaded all items please ensure you hit the SUBMIT button, otherwise your application will remain pending.
Once your application is complete and has been submitted, you will receive an email to confirm that you have applied and we will begin to assess your application.
