How decisions are made

Reviewing and costing your project

We will review your bid and estimate the cost of your project. We’ll contact you if we need more information.

If we think your bid is not possible or doesn’t meet the criteria, we will contact you and tell you:

  • why the bid wasn’t successful
  • potential other sources of funding

Decision-making meetings

After the review stage, all bids that are possible and meet the criteria are voted on to decide whether it gets EDB funding or not.

Quick bid decision making

Decisions on quick bids are made at EDB panel meetings. These meetings happen around once every two months.

You must submit your quick bid two weeks before the EDB panel meets to vote on bids. If your bid arrives later, it will be decided on at the following EDB panel.

Main bid decision making

Main bids will be decided at Area Housing Management Panel in April 2020. You will be invited to these meetings to discuss your bids with the Area Panel representatives (who are elected by tenant and resident associations).

The Area Panel representatives will then vote on which bids should get EDB funding.
