Access to the DLGSC Culture and the Arts Online Grants web portal is created when an Individual, Organisation or Group account registration is created. During the registration process, a unique username and password is set up by the authorised account holder in order to log in and access Online Grants.
Important: please read all the details in the following sections to ensure you create the correct account type and understand your role and responsibilities as an Online Grants account holder:
Once the registration process is completed, the Online Grants account holder can draft, edit and submit applications, acquittal and contract reporting, update contact details and review details related to the account including:
The Online Grants account holder can be:
1. An individual, over the age of 18, applying online for funding for a project or activity, or
2. A representative of an organisation or group who creates an Online Grants account on behalf of the organisation or group. This representative is known as the Key Contact. Group and Organisation accounts will also have a Primary Contact.
The Key Contact is the representative responsible for all the day to day dealings with DLGSC’s Culture and the Arts (WA) division. The Key Contact must have the authority of the organisation or group to register and maintain access to Online Grants and submit applications, contract reporting and acquittals on their behalf.
The Primary Contact is the head of the organisation or group and is the person that all official correspondence is addressed to. The Primary Contact is responsible for signing DLGSC Culture and the Arts funding contracts and reports related to acquittal of contracted activity. In many cases, the Primary Contact and the Key Contact will be the same person. However, only the Key Contact has access to Online Grants.
While WA residency is not a requirement to apply for a DLGSC Culture and the Arts grant, applicants from outside WA must clearly demonstrate benefits to WA artists, creatives and the local community in their applications.
Applicants under the age of 18
If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must register and apply on your behalf.
Individual applicants are encouraged to have their own Australian Business Number (ABN) as evidence of their commitment to developing and carrying on a business as a professional artist. You may apply for a grant without obtaining an ABN; however, if your grant is successful, you must supply an ABN or Statement by Supplier to enable the release your grant funds. You can apply for an ABN at the Australian Business Register (ABR) web site at www.abr.gov.au.
