Total funds granted this financial year
(1 August 2021 to 31 July 2022)


The Grassroots Trust Central Limited Board generally meets every month to review grant applications.

Completed grant applications must be submitted on or before the application closing date prior to the Board meeting in which the application is to be considered.

Applications submitted after this date and time will be held for consideration at the following months meeting.

It is recommended that grant applications are received at least TWO MONTHS before the funding is required, otherwise the application may be declined or not meet your funding deadline.

Applications started but not submitted within 20 days will be archived.  You will receive an alert email before this happens.

We also encourage Organisations to seek funding from a number of sources as there is never any guarantee of funding.
