Grants Awarded



On 9 December 2008, the Minister for Finance and Deregulation the Hon Lindsay Tanner MP, announced the Governments reforms to the administration of grant programs.

The reforms mandate that from 1 January 2009 all agencies are required to publish details of individual grants on their website, no later than 7 working days after a funding agreement is signed by both parties. Details must remain on the website for two years from the date of the signed funding agreement.
