February 2019 Quick Response

This is a preview of the Quick Response February 19 form. When you’re ready to apply, click Fill Out Now to begin.

Quick Response Grants (up to $5,000)

* indicates a required field.

Thank you for your interest in the WEL Energy Trust's Quick Response Grants programme. This is a funding opportunity for grants up to a maximum of $5,000.  We have simplified the application and assessment process and will have decisions notified within four to six weeks of the closing dates. 

For applicants seeking over $5,000, please apply to the Community Support Grants programme. This is a targeted fund aligned with various Trust strategic priority areas.  The application process is more involved and requires more detailed information. 

In deciding which grant programme to apply to, the critical aspect to consider is that organisations can only receive one grant per calendar year. However if an application is unsuccessful you can make another application to the same or to a different programme later in the year. Details of the types of grants and closing dates are listed on the website.

This application form should be straightforward and easy to complete.  Please keep your responses concise and use attachments if necessary. A red * will indicate compulsory sections; you will not be able to submit the application until these are completed.  You will notice that some questions will be not accessible depending on a previous answer.  The system will allow you to complete the application over time and prompts will occur to save when exiting.  Please ensure you click the submit button when complete – if you do not receive an acknowledgement email you application has not been submitted.

We are here to help so if you have queries please do not hesitate to contact either via phone or email.  In fact if this is your first application it can be really helpful to ring and have a discussion about your project etc.
