Application tips
Successful grant applications rely on several important elements. You must:
• meet the grant eligibility criteria
• read the guidelines, terms and conditions and frequently asked questions so you have a thorough understanding of
the grant requirements, terms and conditions, and the supporting documents required
• allow enough time to prepare, write and review your grant application well ahead of the closing date, some grants
close very quickly due to high interest.
