FUNDING OUR WORK
Projects are where we can have the most impact. These are undertaken by individuals, groups or by the whole Network.
Currently, our projects are funded from grants and donations. Funding sources can include both Federal and State Governments, philanthropic groups and private organisations. The value of these grants varies considerably depending upon availability of funds and the grant classification.
Often, funding becomes available at short notice... so it's always better for the Network to know in advance if you are looking for help in funding your project. We can make sure we are ready when some funding becomes available.
