Basic Funding Rules

The basic funding rules applicable to the Fund9 SoMs process are as follows:

  • Each milestone can budget a maximum of 30% of the total funds requested.

  • Based on the stated duration of each milestone, equal monthly payments are provided to FP to reach milestone completion.

  • The FP receives funds in advance of the delivery of each milestone.

    • Except for the final milestone batch payment, where regardless of the final milestone’s length, the last payment will be issued after the Project Close-out Report (PCR) and Project Close-out Video (PCV) has been accepted in addition to the final milestone Proof of Achievement (PoA) to close out and complete the project.

  • Following PoA, the next batch payment can be made in the next fund distribution round to reach the next milestone.

  • There is always at least one payment per milestone.
