Community benefit fund: minor community grants

How to dispose of assets

Grants during caretaker period

If you lodge a grant after 1 July, it will take longer than the normal four weeks to assess. You may not receive a response until early October.

You can't start your project until your grant is approved.

You must wait until you receive formal advice from us before you buy any goods, services or equipment.

If you used grant funding to buy all or part of an asset worth more than $10,000 when you bought it, you must get permission from the Northern Territory Government to dispose of it.

This only applies to assets purchased within five years from date of purchase, unless you have stated in your application how it is to be disposed of.

To get permission to dispose of an asset you need to send a request to community benefit fund (CBF) secretariat.

You should include in your request:

  • why you need to dispose of it
  • explain the benefit to your organisation and the community to dispose of this asset.

For further information call 1300 650 153.

You can email your request to dispose of assets to
