This section explains how applications are managed for community programs funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA).
An application is the submission of a completed application form and provision of any other requested information as stated in the application form. Organisations must prepare applications in accordance with this document and the application form.
Applications can only be submitted during the application round for the Program and for the locations or sites as defined in the application form.
Your application is not an agreement or contract. Meeting the selection criteria does not guarantee funding. Funding is limited and applications will be assessed and prioritised according to the extent to which they meet the selection criteria. Only applications meeting the selection criteria to a high degree are likely to be considered for funding. All information requested on the application must be provided to enable your application to be fully considered.
