  1. Our Platform



2.1    Our Platform is an integrated search tool for Projects funded in Hong Kong. As at the last updated date of these Terms, our database covers results of the following fundings:



  1. Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (“SIE”)
  2. Enhancing Self-Reliance Through District Partnership Programme (“ESR”)
  3. Enhancing Employment of People with Disabilities through Small Enterprise Project (“EEE”)
  4. Community Investment and Inclusion Fund (“CIIF”)
  5. Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged (“PFD”)
  6. Arts Development Council Grants (“ADC”)
  7. CreateSmart Initiative (“CSI”) and
  8. Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme (“ACDFS”)











2.2    Our Platform supports text search function, meaning that by inputting term(s) into the search bar, our database will return any Projects which contains such term(s) in its project title, project summary or description, grantee name and/or partnering organisation name, across various funding sources. Our Platform is bilingual and accepts search terms in English text and Traditional Chinese characters.



2.3    All funding results on our Platform, including project title, grantee name, funding amount, funding period, project summary or description (if any) of each Project, are as published by the relevant Funders on their respective websites. For each Project, we have included a direct link to the funding result published by the Funder for User’s ease of reference.



2.4    Funding results published by different Funders often come in different formats and they may not contain certain information/attributes that are available in other types of funding. To facilitate a meaningful search into our database and support sorting of search results, we have constructed an attribute to all Projects known as “Relevant Date”, which is determined as follows:



(a)    project start date, if such information has been published; or

(b)    project approved date, if such information has been published; or

(c)    deadline for application of the relevant batch of applications.






Please note that the “Relevant Date” is for reference only and it does not mean or imply that the Project necessarily starts on the date shown.



2.5    Our database is maintained by us on a best-effort basis. We cannot guarantee that all information is accurate and complete and always up-to-date. Occasionally there may be information that contains typographical or other errors, inaccuracies or omissions. We reserve the right to correct, modify and update information anytime.



2.6    If you are the Project Owner of a Project and you are aware that certain information in the search result concerning your Project is incorrect or out-of-date, please feel free to reach out to us by email at info@sehji.co so that we may modify and update our entry.

如 閣下是項目擁有人,並發現搜尋結果中相關項目的資料有錯誤或過時,請透過電郵 info@sehji.co聯絡我們,以便我們修訂及更新相關資料。


2.7    The funding results displayed on our Platform are not exhaustive. Our database is continuously growing and expanding. For each funding, we start with the most recent results, and gradually cover earlier years. We will also expand the types of public funding covered by our database.



2.8    sehji is an independent funding application and research institute. We are not an agent of, nor related to, any public or private Funder. Information or search results derived from our Platform is for general information only and should not be relied upon or used as the basis for making funding decisions.
