Development funding is additional to operating costs and the like, so organisations and groups don’t have to stop operating to develop themselves or work more deeply with their communities.

To make an application, open your organisation’s standard Grassroots Application Form and select the Development activities box. This will add a new section to the form with specific questions related to development projects.


Development Pathway Closing Dates

  • Participation and Services: There are no closing dates if your group provides Participation or Service activities (as well as Development activities).
  • Education: Closing dates for groups that provided education (as well as development activities) are the same as the Education Pathway. e.g. April and August each year for consideration.
    The next Education funding round closes on March 31st 2022 with the following date of July 31st 2022. All applications are then reviewed in April and August.
