I have obtained funding from another organisation. Can this be my financial contribution to the project?
It is generally expected that the applicant will fund 50% of the eligible estimated total cost. Should you secure funds from another State or Commonwealth agency you are required to notify the DoT as soon as possible. If any third-party funding is successfully sourced, the total amount of your RADS grant may be reduced.
My organisation does not have sufficient funds to financially contribute to the project. Can I still apply for funding?
RADS funding for more than 50% of the eligible estimated total cost is generally only approved when the organisation can demonstrate lack of available funds for the project. Strong justification as to why more than 50% funds are required must be included in your application.
I have finished my project. How do I claim my grant?
Information on how to claim your grant is available in the 'A Guide to Managing your Grant' brochure (refer to Funding allocation page). This brochure contains templates to assist grantees with the administrative requirements associated with their RADS grants.
The project scope that was approved needs to change. Can I still claim my grant?
If your project scope requires amendment, you must advise the Aviation Team immediately to seek approval to amend your RADS funding deed.
