Guide for grantees
A guide is currently in development that will explain the steps following funding approval.
If your application is successful, you will need to enter into a Deed of Grant with the Department.
There are two key steps to getting your project underway.
1. Health and safety
Every project funded requires a health and safety plan to support safe practices. Local DOC staff can assist you with this and ensure you have a plan that's fit for the project.
2. Confirming your project details
The Funds team will work with you to ensure you have an appropriate project budget and objectives. They will help finalise your Deed of Grant with you. Once your deed is signed you can commence your project.
Be aware that costs incurred prior to a deed being signed will not be reimbursed.
Reporting on your progress
Reporting documents are currently in development and will be available before you sign a Deed of Grant. It is expected that you will report on the project progress and provide evidence of expenditure.
