keep the ball rolling
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
A grant of half a million with a subsidy of, say, twenty-five thousand pounds a year would set and keep the ball a-rolling.
keep the ball rolling = keep an undertaking from flagging
Thanks for your efforts.
