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

The Tasmanian Government has delivered a series of free workshops on how to improve your tender and grant writing skills to win government business.

Business grant writing

Over 2017 and 2018, we have presented grant writing information sessions across the state and delivered a new masterclass workshop. The information sessions unpacked the submission process and what’s involved in putting together an application, then the masterclass delved deeper.

The grant writing handbook and resources from the 2018 program are available below:
