WCB uses a single continuous grant application process for all proposed projects. A flowchart of the process is shown below, and is described in more detail in WCB’s General Grant Guidelines (PDF)(opens in new tab). The process begins with a Pre-Application (Word); however, Applicants can consult with WCB staff at any time, including before submitting a Pre-application. Applicants do not need to determine which WCB Grant Program or Funding Source to apply to; rather, WCB staff will determine that during application review. The review and selection of applications will depend on staffing capacity and the number of applications under consideration at any one time.
*Full applications should only be submitted if a pre-application has been submitted and an invitation to submit a full application has been received
