Taking the pain out of grant applications
Everybody loves winning huge grants. But the process of applying for government grants is a complex and time-consuming one for businesses, universities, local councils and community organisations. Online platforms have made the long application process more straightforward, but a lack of guidance, transparency and feedback makes it hard for organisations to determine how worthwhile it is to invest time and resources applying for a particular grant, and what to expect afterwards.
Portable was commissioned by AusIndustry in the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS) to investigate the current journey of users of DIIS’ Business Grants Hub programs and identify ways the process could be improved for users.
