Before starting, please make sure you have read and understood the application process, reviewed the evaluation criteria and prepared your supporting material. We also recommend you check our FAQs about the Fund, especially the eligibility criteria. You must meet all the minimum requirements to be eligible.
Once you pass the eligibility questions in SECTION 2 of the application, and have uploaded your character reference and certificate of incorporation (if applicable), your application will be assessed against the following criteria in two parts:
APPLICATION: SECTION 4 (80%)

Success & Sustainability = 30%
Employment Pathways = 15%
Risk & Resilience = 5%
Consider the % weighting for each criterion. The higher the weighting the more important it is. You want to spend more time and provide more detail on the higher % questions.
There may be a couple of questions that relate to one criterion. If these questions are not individually weighted assume that they are of equal importance e.g. there are 2 questions within ‘Productivity & Growth’.
