As stated in section 4.4 of the call for proposals, funding may be awarded for an action which has already begun, provided you can demonstrate the need to start the action before an agreement with the ETC is signed. In such case, costs eligible for financing may not have been incurred prior to the date of submission of your proposal, which must be submitted by midnight on 9 April 2018 at the latest. Therefore, costs incurred end April/early May 2018 might receive funding as long as you can justify it in your proposal.
