How to apply for a Significant or Flagship grant

Hand Heart Pocket has two Significant and Flagship Grant rounds per financial year. Organisations can apply directly during our next grant round which opens 1 November 2020 and closes 30 November 2020. Applicants are notified of the outcome of this round in May/June 2021.

Outlined below, are the steps to apply for a Significant or Flagship grant from Hand Heart Pocket:

1.

Read the information about our Significant and Flagship Grants and our Theory of Change

2.

To apply for a Significant or Flagship Grant, ensure that you have a specific initiative or project that supports Hand Heart Pocket’s ‘Theory of Change’ or current strategy. Therefore, the program or initiative must support youth at risk (primarily aged 15-24 years), men’s mental and physical health, women’s financial and physical security or our ageing population.

3.

To apply for a Capacity Building Grant, answer the questions (where possible) that are asked in the detailed proposal section and remember to include any additional supporting documentation that may support your application.

4.

Check that your organisation is a registered Australian or Papua New Guinea charity or a business that trades to intentionally tackle social problems and is eligible for a grant from Hand Heart Pocket.

5.

Ensure that you can qualify your program design and outcomes, or proposed outcomes, with an evidence base.

6.

Understand the limitations that apply to your grant application (see below):

  • Only one application can be made per organisation within any twelve-month period.
  • Existing grants need to be acquitted and released by Hand Heart Pocket before an organisation can apply for a new grant.
  • An applicant cannot reapply for a previously declined project, except by invitation from Hand Heart Pocket.
  • An applicant cannot reapply for a project where Hand Heart Pocket has funded that project at any time during the previous three years, except by invitation following a discussion with Hand Heart Pocket.

7.

Make an application – Hand Heart Pocket has a two-stage application process:

  • Submit an application during an open grant round. Ensure that you have attached all the requested documentation, including a detailed proposal about your program or initiative.
  • If your application progresses, Hand Heart Pocket may request that you provide a face-to-face presentation or facilitate a site visit so we can better understand your organisation and how your program works.
