Some things to keep in mind about your application

  1. You must meet the eligibility criteria.
  2. We give preference to applications that are fully completed.
  3. We can only accept one application per project per grant round. But you're welcome to submit more than one application if they're for different projects.
  4. If you send us both an online application and a paper-based application, we'll only consider the online one. We won't consider emailed or faxed applications.
  5. You'll need to include everything within the application form, including any requested attachments. We won't be reading any information which isn't specifically asked for. If we need more information from you, we'll let you know.
  6. We consult with external industry experts in order to review some applications. They may contact you to validate your application and undertake due diligence.
  7. We may enter into arrangements with third-party organisations to help administer our grants program. Among other things, these organisations may participate in assessing applications and distributing funds to successful applicants. You may be contacted by them regarding your application.
  8. By submitting your application, you agree to the Terms and Conditions.
