Grant design and delivery services

The Business Grants Hub partners with government agencies to achieve their policy objectives through designing and implementing grants programs. We have extensive experience in delivering grants to Australian businesses, organisations and individuals.

We are dedicated to simplifying grants administration in line with the Streamlining Government Grants Administration Program (SGGA). This initiative streamlines and standardises grants administration by reducing duplication of effort and expenses.

How we deliver government grants

Our service covers each phase of the grants lifecycle:

  1. Engage: develop costings, governance arrangements and grant opportunity assumptions
  2. Design: configure your program and provide assessment guidelines and a fit-for-purpose readiness evaluation
  3. Assess: assess grant applications and make recommendations
  4. Establish: negotiate and execute grant agreements
  5. Manage: monitor compliance with grant agreements and manage risk and payments
  6. Evaluate: help you evaluate and close the program

Delivery times

Your program will typically be ready for launch in 12 to 16 weeks after you tell us you want to deliver it through the Business Grants Hub.

It takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks to review and assess grant applications and provide you with a recommendation.

If a program needs urgent attention we may be able to negotiate a shorter implementation timeframe for an additional cost.
