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.
- Community-Led Development (CLD): In the application form, groups describe what they want to do and how their activities align with CLD principles. See the CLD Information Sheet for more information.
- Organisation Development: In the application form, groups describe what they want to do and how these activities will benefit them in one of the capacity areas. See the Organisational Capacities Information sheet for more information.
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. g. April and August each year for consideration. The next Education funding round closes on 1 August 2021.
