Please return the completed EOI to my office by COB Friday 14th March 2023 and note your organisation’s project address, and postal address must be included.

Once received, all EOI’s are managed through a community committee consultation process.  If your EOI progresses through the committee process, community organisation nominations are then made by my office to the Department of Industry, Science and Resources (DISR), which is the administering entity. If your nomination is accepted, your organisation may be invited to apply for the grant by the Department and will be notified directly if your application is successful.

Please ensure you read the attached grant fact sheet, made available by the department, to ensure your organisation meets the criteria.
