Strategic Fund 2017

We would also like to take this time to remind you that our Strategic Funding Round is now open.

The Strategic Fund is a staged business case application process including an initial expression of interest (EOI), shortlist and then business case presentations, for applications over $100k. Expressions of Interest for the Strategic Fund close on 26 February 2017.

The $2.35 million Strategic Fund is where BayTrust will be looking to make a meaningful and measurable difference in the BOP community.
