Assessment and notification

An assessment will be made to determine if the application is eligible by assessing it against the grant criteria. If approved, a Grant Agreement will be entered into which outlines the grant conditions and acquittal requirements. Once signed and returned, the grant will be paid directly to the applicant body (organisation/association).

Successful applicants

If approved, a grant agreement will be entered into which outlines the grant conditions and acquittal requirements. Once signed and returned, the grant will be paid directly to the applicant body (organisation or association).

No grant monies will be paid directly to an individual. The applicant body will be responsible for the acquittal of the grant and so will be responsible to forward any approved funding to individuals as deemed necessary.

Do I need to provide evidence that I have achieved agreed outcomes?

Yes, successful applicants will be required to certify that funding was used for the purpose it was granted through the acquittal process. 

Failure to comply will jeopardise any future payments to this organisation.
