Submit a Project Idea

Please read through the Call for Proposals for the criteria for eligibility, and information on Applying for a Grant which contains guidance documentation and examples of how to submit a Project Idea.


To Access the Online Project Idea Form

Click on the link below to begin completing your Project Idea proposal. 

(Please note that there may be a slight delay for the online form to load on your web browser.)

Please see step 8 if you have already started a proposal and wish to return to it.


Step 1: Have you submitted a Project Idea through a previous round of the Grants Program?

Yes, I have
You will need to have access to the email address and password you used to create your Account previously. Your password would have been emailed to you the first time you signed in. Please make sure you also have access to this email account when the outcome correspondence is sent out.

No, I have not
When you start to develop your Project Idea form, you will be given the opportunity to create a new account.


Step 2: Create a New Account / Signing into a current account

To create an account you have two options. Either:

  • Click 'Save & Finish Later' at the bottom of any page as you start to develop your Project Idea; or

  • Click 'My Account' in the top left corner of any page

When you click either of the options above you will be taken to a Sign In page. Here you can either follow the steps to create a new account, or log into your current account.


Step 3: Start to complete the online Project Idea form

The online Project Idea form has three pages:

  1. Organization

  2. Primary Contact

  3. Project Idea

The fields marked with a red * symbol must be completed in order for your form to be submitted. These are required fields and must not be left blank.

Before you are able to start completing your Project Idea, you must complete the Eligibility Quiz. You must meet the criteria for eligibility in order to access the Project Idea form. If you do not meet the criteria for eligibility, please re-read the Call for Proposals for information on eligibility. If you have read through the Call for Proposals and still need assistance with your eligibility, please email


Step 4: Saving your work

At the bottom of each of the pages you will see an option to 'Save & Finish Later'. Click this button and you will either be prompted to enter your Account details, or you will automatically be taken to your 'My Account' page if you have logged in previously.

You can save your work at any time throughout the development of your Project Idea.

To return to your Project Idea form at any time, use the link you were sent in your email, or click the link under Step 8.


Step 5: Reviewing and printing your work

You can review your work at any time by clicking on Review My Application at the top of each page. You can also print your form by clicking on Printer Friendly Version at the top of each page.


Step 6: Submitting your Project Idea

When you are ready to submit your form, go to page 3 titled Project Idea. At the bottom of the page there is a Review & Submit button. This will take you to the Review My Application page.

If you have missed out any of the required fields, marked with a red * symbol, these will be highlighted by a red arrow. Please complete these fields and click on the Update button at the bottom of this review page.

We strongly suggest you print your Project Idea before submitting it. Once you have clicked 'Submit' from this page you will not be able to make any further changes to your Project Idea.


Step 7: Your Project Idea has been Submitted

You will be returned to your account page and see the message 'Thank you! Your application has been submitted'. You will also receive an email acknowledging that your Project Idea has been successfully submitted and will provide you with a tracking number. Please use this tracking number in all correspondence if you contact us after you have submited your Project Idea.


Step 8: Opening up a current Project Idea
