Looking good James, it's pretty simple to read and straight forward.

A few thoughts:
* Spelling mistakes, "proceedures" "sponsership" "resposible"
* Full "committee" rather than "ctte"?
* Maybe this sounds better, "Applications may be for, but are not limited

Perhaps a section with some examples of what other projects have been
approved would be of benefit?

For example, I made (and continue to work on) the Make The Move website.
But I don't feel confident that this is something I should apply for a
grant for. I think this is part of the reason few people have put in for
grants: members are not sure what is or isn't appropriate and are wary to
ask for fear of looking ridiculous / embarrassment / asking for money on
something that others think is not appropriate / being flamed.

Just a few thoughts :) Nice work.
