Is your project ready for a funding application?

In June 2022 SWDC held a series of grant readiness workshops across the region to provide insights into the reasoning for government funding and what funding bodies are looking for when they assess funding applications.

The South West Development Commission organised grant writing expert Tara Whitney of Whitney Consulting to share her insights and provide some tips on what’s needed to give your application a leading edge.

To help you prepare your project for a future funding application, we encourage you to view the following recordings from our grant readiness workshop presentations:

  1. Readiness and insights
  2. Before you start
  3. Research and data
  4. Case study – RED Grants
  5. Summary

If you have a great idea and you don’t know where to start, you may like to view our Grants 101 – Understanding the basics video animation.

If planning for your project is advanced and you are ready to submit a funding application, we recommend that you view our RED Grants – How to apply videos to learn more about RED Grants and how to submit a competitive application.
