Do I need to wait until I receive my grant award to apply for permits?

No. Though we strongly recommend waiting until you have submitted your grant application to apply for permits, you can apply for permits at any time. It can take up to 8 weeks to receive a decision regarding your grant application – do not wait for that decision to apply for permits if you feel you are ready to do so sooner. Simply contact the Program Manager to discuss your permit and grant timelines.
