The Project

The goal was to secure funding for a First Nation’s owned business in NSW, enabling them to expand and diversify operations. The grant aimed to enhance competitiveness and help businesses secure contracts and supply goods/services to the NSW Government.

The Client: Indigiearth

Indigiearth, led by Sharon Winsor, a Ngemba Weilwan woman from Western NSW, offers premium bush foods sourced sustainably from authentic Australian native products. With a deep passion for Aboriginal culture, Indigiearth connects people to heritage through their range of ethically sourced cooking ingredients, botanicals, and tourism experiences.

The Challenge

Compose a compelling grant proposal tailored to our client, aligning with the NSW Government’s ‘Closing the Gap Grant Program’ – Stream 2: Scale-up & Accelerate. Our objective was to secure a substantial grant of $195,000 to fast-track our client’s expansion.

The Solution

We leveraged our expertise in grant writing to craft a comprehensive submission aligned with program objectives:

  • Analyse Grant Criteria: Evaluate timelines, program goals, and eligibility requirements.
  • Determine Eligibility: Assess the client’s project eligibility for relevant funding streams.
  • Craft Submission: Fulfill all criteria and meet every requirement.
  • Offer Recommendations: Furnish ongoing guidance to the client during the submission process.
  • Review & Refine: Guarantee clarity, relevance, and alignment with program objectives.
