4. Select your Ministry Regional Office, enter funding start and end dates and enter your 2021/2022 funding amount in the 'Total Budget' field.


5. Click 'Save' and return to your dashboard view. Your dashboard will now display your funding for the current year. 


Once you've entered your 2021/2022 funding amount, you'll still be able to see your unused balance from the 2020/2021 fiscal year. Just select the year you want to view at the top of your dashboard.

Remember: if you submit any expenses by mail, fax, email or in person, you'll have to manually deduct them from your funding balance in MyDirectPlan.
