Grant Funding Applications

OPS Advisory has had a high success rate in completing grant funding applications, helping organisations secure critical funding to support their growth.


Federal and State governments provide numerous industry-specific and broad category funding, but the sheer number of programs and the status of them can make it difficult for many organisations to navigate. 


It can be hard to identify the right program for your project, the eligibility criteria, the application process and the deadlines. And this is BEFORE you even get started with the application. 


OPS Advisory can make the process much easier for you, helping identify the programs you'll have the greatest chance of success with.


We can also complete the application process, giving you and your project the best chance of gaining the funding.  This allows you to continue to focus on managing your organisation and not get distracted by what can be a time-consuming process.

We also have extensive business case development and financial modeling experience, so we can help you formalise your project and the rationale for it.

Our Grant Application Process

The starting point to helping you is to understand your business more. 


We conduct a brief preliminary review of your business to understand the following:

  • Your approach to, and track record of, innovation in your organisation

  • Your financial track record and future projections

  • How successful you have been in implementing projects?

  • What impact will a grant have on your business?


Once we have discussed this, we recommend which grants are best for you and your business.


Once a grant funding opportunity has been identified we gather the necessary documentation and other background information required for your funding application. These documents can include:

  • strategic plans, or other long-term plans

  • marketing plans

  • financials (historic and future)

  • project business cases and financial models

  • project plans


From here we work to compile all relevant information and complete the application in line with the funding guidelines.
