Free Grant Writing Workshops

Grants are a great way to fund much-needed local infrastructure, events and other activities, and there’s a range of grants available for communities recovering from the 2019 North Queensland flood event and living through the ongoing drought.

A well written application can made a huge difference to your chances – and to your community – but applying can be daunting if you haven’t had much experience.

To help people make the most of grant opportunities – including the Australian Government-funded grants supporting the region’s ongoing recovery from the 2019 event – the National Drought and North Queensland Flood Response and Recovery Agency is working with councils to host grant writing workshops through North East and North West Queensland.

These free workshops will help you understand what’s needed in a grant application, how you can increase your chances of success, and some of the grants you might be eligible for. One-on-one support will also be available after the workshop so you can hone your skills.

The workshops will be held throughout February and March, and you’ll need to register, which you can do by clicking on the location.

Please note: The Cloncurry, Julia Creek and Richmond workshops for landowners will be held in conjunction with the Drought Community Outreach events being held across the region. These events bring together all levels of Government, charities, non for profit and agricultural organisations to support farmers, farm workers and regional communities living through the immediate and longer-term effects of drought.

Drop in between 10am-2pm and find out what support is available.  To find out more check out our Community Outreach page.
