What this will mean for your organisation:

  • General applications received prior to the 16th March will be processed in line with our normal procedures;
  • Regional Sport and Learning Impact Fund applications can still be submitted in line with our normal procedures;
  • Payment of previously approved grants will not be affected;

  • You will need to register to submit an on-line application using our new system;

You should notice little change in the questions and information we require, it will just be a new way of applying.

We are excited about the changes and are looking forward to being able to communicate more effectively with our community.
