Top tips to win grant funding
Plan in advance. Develop your project concept, possible activities, and funding requirements well in advance; before you even see a suitable grant opportunity.
Seek support and approvals from relevant organisations and partners well in advance. Include a letter of support with your application if relevant.
Tailor your application. Ensure your grant application fits with the funding agency's aims, and addresses the grant's criteria.
Be clear and concise about what you will actually spend the money on.
Highlight the impacts of your project. How will your project change people's lives, change behaviour, or result in a healthier Lake Macquarie environment?
Remember that prior approval from the Alliance Board is required for the Alliance to sponsor a grant application.
