New Sport and Recreation Grant Registration Portal

Sport and Recreation has developed the Grant Registration Portal (GRP) to enhance its grants management system (Enquire), making it faster and easier to use, ensuring ongoing security of all information and speeding up payments.

Registration in the new GRP will allow you to:

  • receive immediate access to online applications for current funding programs
  • access a quicker, easier, streamlined process for grant applications where organisational data is pre-populated in all online applications
  • ensure your information is safe, secure and controlled.

Organisations

  • Any organisation wishing to apply for sport and recreation grant funding must register in the new Grant Registration Portal. If you have an existing project, you are required to register in the new GRP to receive payments or finalise that project.
  • Please note an organisation can only be registered once.
    Even if you have a current registration, you are required to re-register using the new GRP. Organisations will be unable to access existing information in the Portal until they have re-registered.

How do I register?

Please note a desktop computer or laptop is required to register in the Grant Registration Portal (GRP). The GRP does not currently support mobile and tablet devices.

An organisation’s 'Primary Contact' is responsible for registering in the Portal. The Primary Contact is the person authorised to act on the organisation’s behalf including maintaining data in the GRP and inviting Secondary Contacts (other users who may access the portal on behalf of your organisation).

An organisation’s ‘Head Contact’ is also required for registration. The ‘Head Contact’ may be the ‘Primary Contact’ however must be the most senior person within your organisation. This may be the President/CEO or alternatively the Chairperson, General Manager, Commodore, Director, Mayor or Principal. 

The GRP requires mandatory information in some fields for registration to be successful. Organisations will need the following information to register:

  • Incorporation (IA) Number (if applicable). If your organisation is incorporated (most sport and recreation organisations are), you will have an IA number. You can search the Association Register to find your IA number. This number must be typed in exactly into the GRP (including all letters and numbers without spaces e.g. IA12345). You can also look this up when registering in the GRP.
  • ABN or ACN. You can search the ABR website to find your ABN or ACN number. You can also look this up when you are registering in the GRP.
  • GST registration status. The ABR website will also indicate whether your organisation is registered for GST.
  • Date of GST registration. If registered for GST, the date your organisation registered for GST will be indicated on the ABR website. Ensure you record the date of GST registration, not the date your organisation registered with the ABR.
  • A unique organisational email address such as ‘admin@exampleclub.com.au’. Read about organisational email addresses in the frequently asked questions below.
  • An authorised, accountable Primary Contact (see more below).
  • Consideration of Secondary Contacts who may need access to the portal on behalf of your organisation (such as the secretary or a grant writer).
  • Exact physical address of organisation (taken from rates notice) for geocoding purposes.

The department values the integrity and accuracy of information contained in the GRP. Your organisation’s registration cannot be validated by the department if it contains inaccurate or incomplete data. Unvalidated registrations will result in delays to payments. 

There are three ways to register:

  1. Complete the self-registration form in the Portal at Organisation Grant Registration Portal
  2. Contact your local sport and recreation regional office
  3. Complete the manual registration form (DOCX, 101KB) or the hardcopy registration form (PDF, 463KB) and submit it to your local Sport and Recreation Services regional office.

Read our frequently asked questions for more information about what data you need to provide in the Grant Registration Portal.

What happens after I have registered?

After completing the registration form, the Primary Contact will receive an email at the nominated email address to activate the account. Activation allows the primary contact to invite secondary contacts (such as other committee members and grant writers) into the GRP.

New online grant applications will be automatically pre-populated with the applicable organisational information from the GRP, so it is important the information is accurate.

What happens to my current projects/records?

Existing projects in Enquire will be consolidated automatically. This may take up to 10 business days following verification of your registration by the department.

You will need to add project managers or other members of your organisation who need access to the Portal on behalf of your organisation as secondary contacts following activation of your registration for them to access the GRP.

Frequently asked questions for organisations

I have forgotten my password, how do I reset it?

If you have an ‘Enquire’ account for your organisation but have forgotten the login details (username and password):

  1. Select the ‘Forgot your password?’ link under the log in area of Enquire.
  2. Enter the email address associated with your account and select ‘Continue’.
  3. An email will be sent to your email address with your user ID and temporary password. You will be prompted to change this password the next time you log in.

What should I use as my organisational email address?

An email address can only be used once when registering an account in the GRP. Email addresses are treated as a unique identifier in the system and subject to automated duplicate checks.

If a personal email address is used as part of registration of an organisation (either as an organisational email or Primary Contact), that email cannot be used to register in the GRP for personal funding applications or for other organisations the individual may be a committee member for.

For organisations, we highly recommend adopting at least two generic email addresses when registering in the GRP:

  • A generic account, such as info@exampleclub.com.au, for the organisational contact.
  • A second generic account for the Primary Contact such as president@exampleclub.com.au or treasurer@exampleclub.com.au. These email addresses can remain as the primary contact even if the people in those positions change.

What is the Primary Contact?

We recommend one of these following positions should be considered as the Primary Contact:

  • For clubs:
    • the President, Treasurer, Secretary, Chief Executive or equivalent
  • For State Sporting Organisations:
    • the person who has day to day contact with Sport and Recreation about funding. This might not be the Chief Executive Officer or President (who can be entered as “Head Contact” to receive important correspondence) but should be someone with sufficient authority to make decisions on behalf of the organisation.
  • For Local Government Agencies:
    • the person who is responsible for applying and acquitting State Government Sport and Recreation funding. This might not be the Chief Executive Officer or Mayor (who can be entered as “Head Contact” to receive important correspondence) but should be someone with sufficient authority to make decisions on behalf of the LGA.

You will need the following information for your organisation’s Primary Contact:

  • Authority by the organisation/committee to register as the Primary Contact in the GRP
  • An appropriate organisational email address, such as ‘president@exampleclub.com.au’. We recommend this is different from the generic organisational email address entered above.

What is the Head Contact?

The Head Contact must be the most senior person within your organisation such as the President, Chief Executive Officer, Chairperson or Principal. This person would have the authority to execute grant contracts/sign legal documents on your organisation’s behalf. The Head Contact may be the Primary Contact.

What is a Secondary Contact?

A Secondary Contact is a person invited into the GRP by a primary contact who may access the portal on behalf of the organisation.

A Secondary Contact can view organisational data in the GRP, but cannot edit or change the information.

A Secondary Contact can apply and submit grant applications on behalf of the organisation and view existing and historical applications and projects in the system (following the automated data consolidation process).

Can my organisation have multiple Secondary Contacts?

Yes. There is no limit to the number of Secondary Contacts an organisation may invite to access to the Portal on its behalf.

Information for grant writers and organisations that use grant writers

Grant writers can only be added as a secondary contact in the GRP.  We recommend grant writers contact their clients and request to be invited into the GRP as a secondary contact on behalf of the organisation.

Each sporting club/organisation that you work with will need to be aware of your preferred contact email so they can invite you as a secondary contact to their organisation.

If you are a grant writer for multiple organisations, you will need a unique email address for each organisation you are applying on behalf of. If you are invited as a secondary contact using an email address that is already in the system, it will identify a duplicate entry and prevent access to the system.

With this in mind, grant writers are strongly encouraged to work with sporting clubs/organisations to create email addresses as required, such as exampleclub-grantwriter@hotmail.com.au.
