The Tasmanian and Australian Governments are committed to ensuring businesses are aware of opportunities to tender for government business.

The Tasmania government delivers a series of free workshops on how to improve your tender and grant writing skills to win government business.

Business grant writing

In 2018 we are repeating the grant writing information sessions from last year and delivering a new masterclass workshop. The information sessions will unpack the submission process and what’s involved in putting together an application, then the masterclass will delve deeper with time for you to work on your own project. For bookings please go to our Grant Writing page.

The grant writing handbook and resources from the 2017 program are available below (you will receive a copy of these at the information session/masterclass workshop):
