Early planning allows implementing countries to sign grants with enough time to ensure Principal Recipients (PRs) can start implementing grant activities on the start date of the implementation period. This is referred to as advanced grant-making.
Applicants can take part in advanced grant-making by engaging selected PRs early during country dialogue. The aim is to develop key funding request documents with the level of detail required during the grant-making stage of the process, ensuring that:
Advanced grant-making is strongly encouraged where the applicant has been selected for the Program Continuation application approach, or where the applicant has chosen to continue with the existing PR.
