For information about the NT suicide prevention strategy, go to the Department of Health website.

Grant applications for 2020 are closed.

|

Applicants must meet all of the following:

  • be a viable legal entity as defined by the Australian Tax Office, for example:
    • an individual (sole trader)
    • a private company
    • a public company
    • a cooperative, or
    • a partnership
  • have an Australian Business Number (ABN) or provide evidence that they have applied for one
  • not be a political party
  • have no overdue reporting requirements including financial acquittals for any previous NT Government grant
  • have, or be in the process of applying for, a public liability insurance policy with minimum cover of $10 million per event.

Information for non-legal entities

Unincorporated bodies may only apply if they nominate an organisation with an appropriate legal status that agrees to accept legal and financial responsibility for the grant.

Payment of funds will be made through the nominated organisation, which will be known as the administering body.

Applicants must ensure that the application is signed by the Chief Executive Officer, or equivalent, of the organisation. This person must have ultimate financial and management responsibility for the organisation.

Projects, activities or events must align with at least one of the three following priority areas:

  • build inclusive communities and strengthen community resilience
  • address stigma and discrimination
  • raise awareness of effective suicide prevention practices.

The following won't be funded:

  • any activity or event that does not occur within the NT
  • international travel
  • fund-raising activities
  • recruitment agency fees
  • projects that have already occurred, or costs that have already been incurred
  • wages for staff members performing duties under their normal role.

Applications for 2020 are closed.

Your proposal will be assessed by a panel.

You will need to show how your proposal will:

  • support localised action to build stronger communities that have increased capacity to respond to and prevent suicidal behaviour through raising awareness and reducing stigma
  • address the outcomes and priority groups identified in the NT Suicide Prevention Strategic Framework
  • meet an identified suicide prevention need for Territorians.

You can find out about the Suicide Prevention Strategic Framework on the Department of Health website.

The assessment panel may decide that a proposal should only be partially funded, depending on the content and quality of the application received.

If your application is successful the grant agreement will require you to provide the following:

  • updates regarding any key dates to allow for promotion and participation opportunities
  • written evidence of acknowledgment of the NT Government on promotional materials, where appropriate
  • images of the event or project, where appropriate, for use in government promotional material
  • an evaluation report of your activity/project within 30 days after it is completed
  • a financial statement that provides details of how you used the grant.

Successful applications may be published or used by government. This is a condition of your application.

The following may be shared:

  • organisation name
  • amount
  • purpose
  • special approval conditions.

A variation should be negotiated with your grant manager, if required, particularly regarding any changes to the timing of an activity.

Events can be postponed or repurposed to deliver the event in a different way. If an event is cancelled, funding can also be rolled over to the following year.

If an event is cancelled, you are able to claim costs already incurred.

If you are planning major changes to service delivery or are unable to deliver your service, particularly if you are an essential service provider, please contact your grant manager as soon as possible.
