Grant and tender writing resources

Healthcare Business Solutions delivered grant and tender writing workshops across the NQPHN catchment in April 2023. Participants were provided with essential information, resources, and the tools to build capabilities and improve knowledge around preparing and submitting competitive, compliant funding applications.

Grants and tenders provide valuable resources for primary care providers to perform projects or provide services they otherwise would not be able to. It is important to remember; however, that grants are competitive, and it takes time and preparation to find the right grant and tender opportunities, plan a project, and write the application.

Below are some tips and resources developed by Healthcare Business Solutions.

The business capability statement template:

  • is organised and clearly laid out
  • includes key business information
