Grant writing tips from our staff

Craig - "It's tax payer's money, not yours.  Don't complete a grant application with a sense of entitlement"

Jen - "Don't assume the assessor is familiar with your project or location, make your information clear to someone reading it for the first time"

Mike - "Don't just say you will meet the merit criteria or repeat them, make sure there is evidence to support your claim"

Kevin - "Writing a grant application requires problem solving and resilience, if you are finding it hard, ask us for help"
