A FREE workshop for small business owners and community groups will give Douglas Shire an edge in grant funding applications.
Douglas Shire Council is partnering with the National Drought and North Queensland Flood Response and Recovery Agency to host a grant writing workshop for community groups and small businesses next week.
The workshop will be held on Monday 8 March at the Port Douglas Community Hall.
Douglas Shire Mayor Michael Kerr said the workshop would be a fantastic opportunity to get helpful tips on writing a competitive grant application.
“Grants aren’t just a great way to fund much needed local infrastructure, there are also opportunities for businesses and community groups to bid for funding from other levels of Government to innovate their business, carry out events or purchase new equipment as well,” he said.
“While applying for grants can be daunting, a well-written application can make a huge difference and put yourself ahead of the pack.”
The workshop will help you understand what’s needed in a grant application, how you can increase your chances of success, and some of the grants you might be eligible for.
One-on-one support will also be available afterwards so you can hone your skills.
