Manage my grant
If your grant application is successful you will receive a Funding Agreement. Funding is dependant upon your acceptance of the Funding Agreement which contains Terms and Conditions and details about the Activity (Activity Schedule).
The type of the funding agreement with DPCD is dependant on the type of organisation you belong to. DPCD uses the following types of funding agreements:
- Local Government Authorities Header Agreement (Word 125 KB)
- Common Funding Agreement Terms and Conditions (PDF 157 KB) or (Word 148 KB). This agreement is for non-for-profit organisations. Find more information about the Common Funding Agreement.
- Victorian Indigenous Funding Agreement
The Funding Agreement is a legal contract, so please keep it in a safe place.
Upon signing of the Funding Agreement you agree to deliver the project as described. Your Schedule, which forms part of the Funding Agreement, will describe how you need to report on the project progress and (where applicable) on the project expenditure. Some programs may negotiate with you specific requirements such as site visits, regular communications, and/or steering group progress meetings (examples only). If your application was submitted online, details of key dates and milestones can be viewed on My Grants (you will need to have registered and have your Username and Password for access):
A common condition of DPCD grants is that the recipients must agree to follow guidelines for acknowledging funding.
To receive a payment, a successful applicant needs to provide an invoice only if their organisation is not registered for GST and/ or has no ABN. The invoice needs to be issued in accordance with the Australian Taxation Office requirements (note DPCD's ABN is 30 485 673 497).
If a grant recipient is registered for GST and has a valid ABN, then there is no need to provide a tax invoice, as DPCD will issue a tax invoice on behalf of the grant receiving organisation.
If a grant recipient does not have an ABN, they need to fill out and submit to DPCD a Statement by Supplier form to avoid withholding 48.5% of tax from the grant payment.
Methods of payment for your grant
There are two methods of payment: Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and cheque. The preferred method of payment is EFT. It is your responsibility to inform us if your payment details have changed (ie. new bank account set up).
If your application was submitted online, details of payments can be viewed on My Grants (See above screen shot. You will need to have registered and have your Username and Password for access).
