A budget is required to support your application for a Healthy and Physical Activity grant. You can read budget tips and review the budget table example on this page, to assist you with developing your budget.

Budget tips

  • Make sure your total project income equals your total expenditure.
  • Volunteer staff can be costed from $35 per hour for non-skilled labour and at relevant rates for professionals.
  • Provide a minimum of two recent quotes for projects which include equipment.
  • Ensure you are familiar with the guidelines, in particular, what is eligible for funding.

Please note that for the purpose of assessment:

  • All budget figures provided must be GST exclusive i.e. deduct GST from quotes and invoices.
  • If your organisation is not GST registered the 10% GST will be added to your grant prior to assessment, but will not be itemised as GST.
  • If your organisation is GST registered 10% GST will be added to your grant as an itemised GST gross-up.
