Applying for Grant Funding

PERC works with manufacturers, researchers, and government partners to strengthen technical knowledge, leverage funding, and maximize investments in developing new propane products. We encourage proposals for projects that align with the Council's strategic needs.

Applying for Grant Funding

Preparing Your Application

The first step to apply for funding is to complete a brief Project Summary describing your idea. This step serves as an idea screen, opening the door to a preliminary investigation of the project.

You will enter your Project Summary online via the Council's Grants and Rebates Management System.

  • Step 1: Download the Idea Submission Form, complete it offline and save it on your local computer. You will upload the finished document as part of the online funding request submission.
  • Step 2: Collect the information you will need to complete your submission online.
  • Step 3: Submit your funding request via the Council's Grants Management System

The Council's Response

We will send you an acknowledgment that your Project Summary was received, and we will direct it to the council's advisory committee for review. Each project is evaluated based on its fit with the strategic direction and resource availability of the Council. If the project progresses beyond the initial review, a Council staff member is assigned to the project. The staff member will discuss with the grantee the activities and deliverables required and work with the grantee to ensure the project deliverables are completed in accordance with the Council's schedule.

If, as a result of the project's review, the Council concludes that there is no prospect of Council funding, we will notify you promptly. Projects determined eligible for grant support will be acknowledged upon receipt at the Council; the review process for eligible inquiries can take up to eight weeks. All material submitted becomes the property of the Council.

Deadlines

With few exceptions, there are no fixed deadlines for submitting a grant funding request.
