Grant Funding Opportunities and Resources
Welcome to Glen Innes Severn Council’s newsletter informing committees, community groups, businesses, and not for profits of potential funding opportunities through grants.
What needs to be addressed in an application?
Carrying on from last month where we tabled six (6) general areas that are dealt with in most grant applications, this month we will expand on point one:
The goal of any project is the end result desired. This will usually have multiple layers. For example our goal may be to fund a new toilet block at a local park, but the toilet block in and of itself is not the complete desired outcome. The reason WHY we are building the toilet block forms a part of our goal; that may be to provide amenities so families and visitors can stay longer and enjoy other facilities the park has to offer, like fitness or recreational activities that add to the social benefit of the community.
Project objectives are specific, measurable statements of what needs to be accomplished to reach the project goal.
Sometimes a particular project will need to be broken down into multiple objectives (often called milestones) such as plan and design, community consultation, construction, marketing, and an ongoing management plan for maintenance.
Once you have identified your goal, then use dot points to jot down all of the objectives required to meet your goal. You can expand on these in later drafts of your application. These objectives will also help you to brainstorm all possible costs the project may incur to reach your goal, which can then be professionally estimated and added to form your final budget.
