Information about all Victorian Government grants through a new consolidated grants portal.
Minister for Innovation, Services and Small Business Louise Asher today announced that Victorian businesses and citizens can access information about all Victorian Coalition Government grants through a new consolidated grants portal called Grants Victoria.
Speaking today at a business forum organised by the Member for Forest Hill Neil Angus, Ms Asher said Grants Victoria provides a central source for Victorians to access all grants available to them via www.vic.gov.au/grants.

“Grants Victoria is easy to use and navigate and visual indicators clearly show if a grants program is open or closed,” Ms Asher said.
“Victorians can search a comprehensive catalogue, currently with more than 130 grants, or search using key words and categories (e.g. community, health, education, regional and rural), or view recently added grants.”
Ms Asher said Grants Victoria delivers on the Coalition Government’s election pledge to incorporate grants and government support programs into the new Grants Victoria, a one-stop-shop for information on a single, whole-of-government website.
“Previously Victorians have had to look for grants on a range of websites maintained by different government departments and entities, making them difficult to access,” Ms Asher said.
“The new Grants Victoria portal not only contains a full, aggregated list of grants, and information about their status, but also allows grants to be searched for by using keywords.”
Grants Victoria will continue to be enhanced to ensure that relevant grants information is easy to access for all Victorians.
Ms Asher said the Coalition Government is taking action to make it easier for Victorian businesses and citizens to access government information and services.
“Through the new ICT Strategy released in February this year, the Coalition Government is delivering better services to Victorians,” Ms Asher said.
“The Grants Victoria strategy outlines how we are making it easier for Victorian citizens and businesses to access government services online.”
Writing a good quality grant application is a critical element in the application process. An application needs to be well thought through, written concisely, have clear objectives and purpose, and show clear links to the objectives of the grant guidelines.
The grant application must answer all questions, provide all required information and respond to the merit criteria. It should also reflect your organisation’s business strategy.
Writing a good application takes time and effort, and requires particular writing skills.
