Grant Guru

February 23, 2021

In 2020, Community Industry Group received funding through the Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) for a regional custom grant portal. NGOs are able to use the portal to find grant opportunities which are available in our region. Each grant will be summarised in a one-page template, and the portal will include search, planning and automated notification functionality. Members are able to create a profile on the portal to store their grant info and preferences, and notifications will be sent when appropriate grants are available. It’s easy to use and can track your grants too. Check out this video for more information: https://vimeo.com/515536162 Check out Grant Guru here: https://communityindustrygroup.org.au/grants/
