    All organisations are encouraged to apply regardless of their size; in the case of small projects, the award can be of small amounts over multiple years (i.e., $35,000 a year for three years).

Auspicing information

'An auspicing body is an incorporated organisation and enables a non-incorporated group  to apply for funding and grants. This means that the auspicing organisation receives the money on behalf of the unincorporated group and is responsible for making sure the project is completed and the money is accounted for (acquitted).' says Queensland Council of Social Service.
