Find a grant

We provide a wide range of grants and other forms of support for businesses, community organisations and individuals.

Please note that the Northern Territory Government is transitioning to a new grant management system, GrantsNT, providing end to end grant management processing and a single online portal for grant applicants to interact with government and to manage their grant activities.

The roll out of GrantsNT has commenced, with all agencies progressing to the new system over time. It is expected implementation across agencies will take between 18 months to 2 years for all NTG grants to be accessible in GrantsNT.

During the transition phase, please continue to use the below links as per normal.
