FACS funds government and non-government agencies including community-based organisations to deliver services to the community on its behalf.
Service providers approach FACS from time to time to seek advice on the funding available to support new initiatives or projects. As new funding for any program becomes available, it is usually advertised through the NSW Government’s e-tender website Tenders NSW website. Organisations are encouraged to register their details on e-tender to receive information on any potential funding opportunities and to familiarise themselves with the site.
Agencies submitting applications for funding then go through a selection process. Funding may be provided on a one-off basis or over a specified time frame.
Successful organisations sign a Human Service Agreement which forms the basis for the terms and conditions that all funded service providers are expected to comply with and the services they agree to provide.
