How to claim

Read these steps carefully. Failure to comply with program requirements and due dates may result in the funding offer being withdrawn.

Step one: Submit online forms

Log on to the CBP SmartyGrants website to access and submit the following online forms:

  • EFT Banking Detail Form due by 30 September 2020*
  • Funding Deed due by 30 September 2020*

Projects requiring development consent will be allowed until 31 December 2020* to submit their Funding Deed.

Email CBP2019@facs.nsw.gov.au if your project has been completed.

Step two: Claim grant payment

Your submitted Funding Deed will be reviewed by CBP. You may be required to provide copies of owner’s consent, public liability insurance (certificate of currency) and development consent if not already provided.

Upon receipt of all requested information, CBP will review and counter-sign your Funding Deed. How your grant proceeds to payment will depend on whether your organisation has an ABN or not.

For organisations that do have an ABN, you will be emailed:

  • Funding Deed counter-signed by CBP
  • Payment Information confirming that payment of your grant has been scheduled for release.
  • No invoice is required to be submitted to claim your grant funding.

For organisations that do not have an ABN, you will be emailed:

  • Funding Deed counter-signed by CBP
  • A purchase order to quote when submitting your invoice
  • Instructions for invoicing
  • ATO guide to invoicing. 

Step three: Submit Progress Report

You need to submit a Progress Report by 15 February 2021* regardless of whether your project is paid or not and whether development consent is required.

The Progress Report Form will be uploaded to your SmartyGrants account on 1 February 2021*.

If your project has been completed, fill in the Completion Report instead.

Step four: Submit Completion Report

All CBP2019 projects must be completed before 31 October 2021.

Completion Reports are required no later than 30 November 2021.

Refer to Evidence for Completion (PDF, 116.56 KB) for points required to close your project.
