Application Feedback

Feedback can be valuable in helping organisations strengthen future grant funding proposals. The Government offers feedback on grant applications that is relevant to the specific funding rounds and proportional to the complexity of the assessment process and total funding available. Applicant feedback comprises round-specific feedback summaries and, in some cases, individual feedback.

Feedback Summaries

Feedback summaries for open funding rounds will be published on the Community Grants Hub website to provide all organisations with easy to access information about the assessment process and the main strengths and areas for improving their applications. 

Feedback summaries will include information about:

  • the strengths of highly rated proposals
  • how applicants used evidence to demonstrate their capability against selection criteria
  • ways proposals could be strengthened
  • other relevant considerations, such as over-subscription and ineligibility rates.

Organisations will be advised about the publication of feedback summaries when they are notified of the outcome of a grant process.
