grant funding

A successful grant funding submission creates opportunities and benefits for your organisation and community.


our Approach to grant funding

In today’s competitive grant environment, a well-researched and written grant funding application is essential to securing opportunities for your organisation or community.

We are experienced in crafting successful grant funding submissions for local councils, and community and not-for-profit organisations. So far we have successfully obtained over $27 million in grant funding for projects in regional New South Wales.

Our grant funding services are led by Steve Thompson who is a qualified planner with extensive experience and knowledge in grant writing and application processes.

Where appropriate, we also draw upon our legal, governance, conflict resolution and procurement expertise to build a strong case for your project.
