How to apply

All applications for funding grants are completed online through Smarty Grants.

You only need to register once and if you have applied via Smarty Grants previously you can use your existing password and login again.

Planning your projects

Developing a work plan or timeline is an excellent way to achieve a successful project as it records the major milestones for the project and who is responsible for completing them.

Providing such information is a good way to show that your project is well planned and ready to go. To assist you in this process, we have developed a basic sample Project Plan and Work Plan for you to use in the planning and implementation process.
