2017 Quick Response Grants
Hobsons Bay 2017 Quick Response Grants open for applications on 13 February and close on 12 April 2017 or earlier if funds are exhausted.
Quick Response Grants are an opportunity for groups and organisations to apply for funding for unexpected or emerging projects which do not fit within the annual Community Grants Program timelines.
Community groups who have already received funding through the 2017 Community Grants Program will not be eligible to apply for the Quick Response Grants.
Applicants are required to submit applications using an online application process called Smartygrants. Access to the internet and an email address to make an application is required. Staff at Hobsons Bay Libraries can assist with creating an email address and submitting applications.
Each application will be assessed individually and it is expected that the assessment and funding process will take approximately four weeks from the time the application is received.
If the funding pool is exhausted prior to the end of the grant application period, a notification will be placed on Council’s website and the smartygrants page.
Visit the SmartyGrants website at hobsonsbay.smartygrants.com.au to view guidelines, application forms and make an application.
