Top Tips

Here are some things to consider when applying for a grant:

  1. Be strategic! Match what funding is available and when, we all know that writing a grant application in a rush rarely works.
  2. Make sure you find grants that align well with the future direction of your business or community group.  Find out the ‘how and why’ and a bit more about the funding provider to ensure it’s a great match.
  3. Avoid making simple mistakes. Make sure you have somebody working with you on the application or at least have someone check it before you submit it.
  4. Live up to your funding obligations. Make sure you’re prepared to provide interim and final reports to the funding provider to keep up your end of the agreement.
