Can eligible organisations still apply if they have an unacquitted grant?  

Yes. Organisations are expected to meet the requirements of their Funding Agreement. Eligible applications will be assessed against the program aims, focus, objectives and assessment criteria.

Overdue grant acquittals of more than two years will affect your eligibility. 

Any organisations with outstanding financial acquittal and project reports should contact the Office of Sport grants unit

I was unsuccessful last round is it possible to get feedback on my application?  

Yes. The grants unit can provide a summary of assessor feedback to unsuccessful applicants from the previous rounds of the Her Sport Her Way Grant Program. 

Can an organisations co-contribution be from a partner organisation?  

Yes. If you have an established partnership and the agreement includes a financial component, this can be included in the applicant contribution. Co-contributed funding can be included as part of the overall budget or scope of the project.  

Can I apply for a second phase of the project that was successful in previous rounds?  

Yes. Applications for projects that have already been funded by the NSW Government must include significant new or additional scope to be considered. 

Can the Office of Sport review my draft application?  

No. The Office Sport personnel cannot review or provide feedback on any grant applications. Frequent asked questions and answers are available on the Grant Program webpage and updated as required. The Grant Program webpage also includes a program information session. Advice can be given relating to the online application process.  

Will all applications receive funding? 

No. The application process is competitive. It is anticipated that there will be a number of applications competing for the funding available. 

Successful applications will be those which best meet the objectives of the program, can demonstrate a need for the project, provide a cost-effective budget and can demonstrate that the organisation applying has the capacity to deliver the project. 

It is good practice to complete the application in SmartyGrants well prior to the closing time. A late or incomplete application will only be considered where its acceptance would not compromise the integrity and competitiveness of the process. The final determination on whether a late application will be accepted will be made by the Grant Assessment Panel supported by a probity advisor. 

When will I know if my organisation is successful?  

It is anticipated that successful grant announcements will be made in May 2022. Successful organisations will be advised in writing, which will include the requirements to accept the grant and enter into a funding agreement. 

What if I receive funding for the same project from another government agency?  

Grant funding from another NSW State Government agency is not permitted as a co-contribution for the same component of a project.  

However, co-contributions made from Local and Federal funding sources are permitted to be used for this purpose. Other NSW State Government grant funding must be used for an additional component of the project. 

Our sporting organisation is currently not recognised as NSW State Sporting Organisation by the Office of Sport, how can our organisation apply for recognition?
