Optimising your grant application

 

Do you have a great idea that will help to strengthen the health of your community?

Are you thinking of putting together a grant application to help make your idea happen?
 Congratulations!
 As grant rounds are very competitive, your application will need to stand out from the crowd. That’s where we can help!

 

Does your idea involve food or nutrition? Perhaps you’d like to help client’s plan meals or navigate supermarkets. Or perhaps you’d like to serve up meals or snacks as part of your program.

Nutrition Australia ACT can help you!

We have supported a number of organisations in successful grant applications.

Talk to us about the food or nutrition based activities you have planned before you submit your application. We can strengthen your application by ensuring it ticks the boxes for appropriate and current health messages that reflect the priorities of grant programs.

We can also review your proposed evaluation methods to ensure the program outcomes are adequately captured. This will assist your program to attract ongoing funding.

 

In the meantime, things to consider to optimise your application:
  • Use current health statistics to explain the need for your program.
  • Always refer back to the priorities of the grant round to keep your answers focused
  • Create partnerships with other community organisations to add extra weight to your application.
  • Think about the staffing needs of your proposed program and the skills/abilities required to successfully run the program.
