The SIG Special Projects Fund was established by the Board of Directors to assist SIGs that want to undertake worthwhile projects but lack sufficient funds. It also exists as an emergency or loan fund for SIGs that run into financial difficulties. The Fund is administered by the SIG Cabinet Steering Committee. The SIG Cabinet Director regularly reports to the Board of Directors and the SIG Cabinet on each use of the Fund.
Requests for funds from the SIG Special Projects Fund may be submitted at any time, but funding will not be available until the subsequent fiscal year. The SIG Officers Manual describes types of requests, application procedures, evaluation process, and criteria for project approval, special emergency allocations and administrative reporting.
