|Core Funding Application Changes functionality is available on the Early Years Hive and permits service providers to make changes to their Core Funding Application Module.|
The usual rule is that retrospective changes will not be backdated, but in light of the fact that the facility to make changes was not immediately available, there is a two-week window in which changes that occurred before 28 October will be backdated if they are submitted before 14 November 2022. After this date, back payments will not be permitted for Core Funding.
You must replace all vacancies that have since been filled with the details of the new staff member. Where you have not been able to find a replacement, you must DE-ACTIVATE all vacancies greater than 4 weeks old. This is a mandatory update. For further guidance on vacancies see the ‘Core Funding Application Change – Replacing a Vacancy’ video available here.
Failure to update vacancies on your Service Profile and Core Funding Application Module will results in Core Funding payments been placed on hold.
Please note that providers who have not had any changes to their application information since it was submitted do not need to take any further action.
If you have any queries, please contact the Early Years Provider Centre (EYPC) by raising a Service Request on Hive under the programme: Core Funding.
