The HMG guarantee will cover the payment of awards to UK applicants for all successful Erasmus+ bids submitted before the end of 2020 (including those from sports organisations). Successful bids are those that are approved directly by the Commission or by the UK National Agency and ratified by the Commission. We have recently published updated guidance on GOV.UK that helps beneficiaries take the first steps towards making an application for the guarantee.
