Yes. Applicants must exhaust other funding sources (in most cases, grants) before applying.  This is common to every open access fund worldwide.  If an author has no grant money or the grant money is all gone or the grant money is all allocated or the funder does not allow monies to be used for publication costs, then the Open Access Authors Fund is available.
