2. Preparing submissions
Writing competitive grant submissions that will result in a successful grant application can be a daunting task. If an association has any queries regarding the requirements for a specific grant or information regarding the application process it is recommended that they contact the organisation responsible to for the grant.
The Department of Local Government and Department of Regional Development and Lands have developed a guide to writing submissions for grants and funding. This document provides practical information and examples for writing submissions that may assist applicants.
Organisations such as the West Australian Council of Social Services Inc (WACOSS) provide training courses specifically designed to teach groups how to write successful submissions, develop project proposals and package a submission that positively represents the organisation.
