Possibility of delayed grant payment and re-sceduling of projects

Due to the outbreak of a COVID-19 pandemic, at this point, it is unsure if the proposed projects under CGF, Research Granrt Scheme can start as scheduled. Because of this, NEF may postpone 2020's grant payment until the safety of project implementation is assured. Successful applicants may also need to postpone or re-schedule their project for the pandemic. In that case, they retain the right to receive the grant up to one year from the start date of the proposed project. However, the right will be cancelled after one year if cannot be started. Thank you for your understanding.
