Create jobs locally with Grants Hub
NEVER miss another grant opportunity again – let “the hub” do the work for you.
That’s the thinking of Dubbo Regional Council projects and grants officer Matthew Taylor in collaboration with his Narromine Shire Council counterpart, Phil Johnston.
The Dubbo Region and Narromine Grants Hub has partnered with Grantguru to provide a free grant finding tool for local businesses, community groups, not-for-profit organisations and sporting clubs.
Grantguru is one of Australia’s most comprehensive grants databases and a powerful search engine.
“We want to see local businesses and community groups thrive and prosper in the Dubbo region. This is a local tool where they can search for grants in the region, have the tools to access data and also get help, and hopefully win applications more often. It’s a positive for businesses and community groups,” Mr Taylor said.
Both grants officers are just a phone call away if applicants are unsure of particulars pertaining to their application.
“Absolutely get in touch with us. For the Dubbo region we’ve linked it back through our economic development team. We’re encouraging businesses that are looking for business advice. We’re here to facilitate connections. Also on the grants front as well, I’m here with services for the community so if you want to discuss grant strategy or opportunities that are out there, or maybe you’re working on an application and you have a couple of curly questions that need some thinking around, we can help.
“We also provide other types of data to support applications (because we have) access to different sources. We can point people in the right direction, but definitely your Grants Hub is a one stop shop,” Mr Taylor said.
Access to the hub is free and a set-andforget feature means applicants need never miss a deadline or new grants coming online.
“You can access grants, learn about grants and access resources, plus there are links to economic and regional data and grant writers as well.
“You might not have the time or capability yourself so you might want to approach a grant writer. Most people work and then if they’re part of a club or notfor-profit group or sporting club to then have to turn around at night and have the job of finding money for fees or buying new equipment... this is the site to go to.”
