Community benefit fund: gambling amelioration grants

How your application is assessed

This page provides information on how your application for a gambling amelioration grant is assessed.

Your application will be assessed by the director-general of licensing.

The director-general of licensing will make a recommendation to the responsible Minister.

Step 1. Check

The CBF secretariat will check the following:

  • you are an eligible organisation
  • your organisation is meeting its reporting obligations under the Act under which it is incorporated or with Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission if applicable
  • your organisation does not have any outstanding acquittals with the CBF.

The secretariat will attach a funding history for your organisation to your application.

Step 2. Assessment

The director-general of licensing may seek input from other NT Government agencies.

The director-general considers all funding applications and makes recommendations to the Minister who will ultimately determine if an application will or will not be funded.

Your application will be assessed to ensure it:

  • meets the eligibility requirements
  • seeks funding for an activity, purpose or project permitted
  • aligns with the priorities set
  • has a clear plan and the proposed outcomes demonstrate the ability to  minimise gambling harms
  • addresses a short fall in the current provision of gambling amelioration services
  • demonstrates a strong community development focus
  • demonstrates the capacity of the organisation to deliver the project including qualifications of key personnel
  • provides evidence of your organisations sound financial management
  • provides evidence of community support and involvement
  • has an accurately costed and viable budget including financial support from other sources.

Step 3. A decision is made

Once an outcome has been determined for your application, the CBF secretariat will write and advise you of the outcome.
