Grants Process

Application for project funding from the Hamer Family Fund is a two-stage process:

  1. A brief (2 A4 pages maximum) submission describing how your project and your group or organisation fits within the objectives of the Fund. At its subsequent quarterly meeting, the Board will consider this submission and decide whether or not to invite a full grant application.
  2. A full grant application, clearly stating
    • Objectives
    • Timeline
    • Major challenges foreseen
    • Criteria and targets for measurement of results
    • Financial requirements and budget
    • Alignment with Hamer Family Fund aims

Funding is provided by the Australian Communities Foundation, acting on the recommendation of the HFF Board. Generally the November meeting of the Board considers grants to be recommended to the ACF; if funds permit, applications may be considered at other meetings.
