The information from the applications for project funding in Lund between 2008 and 2012 was compiled and reviewed as quantitative data. A complementary interview with one of the employees in the municipality of Lund that works with preparing applications for decisions has been done.

Based on the collected data it could be concluded that the main problem with the present support and funding system is not communication related issues. The main issue is that the system has too narrow criteria, causing some of the applicants getting excluded in the process. (Less)
