Selection will be agreed on privately and at the committee's discretion.

1.4 The Rebel Sport Grants Selection Committee may at any time request further documentation to ensure an application is compliant.

1.5 Applicants will be notified by email once decisions are made by the Rebel Sport Grants Selection Committee.

2. Non-compliant Grant Applications

2.1 Grant applications found to be non-compliant will not be approved. In this context, "non-compliant" means, Grant applications that:

a) do not contain all the relevant information;
b) are retrospective;
c) do not comply with the purposes for which the Grant was approved; or
d) where the applicant has received full funding from other source(s), or a previous Rebel Sport Grants by Rebel Sport.

2.2 Non-compliance is determined by the Rebel Sport Grants Selection Committee, based on the information supplied and any independent checks undertaken that they deem necessary.

2.3 An application for funding is considered "retrospective" if the applicant has made payment on the goods and services that are subject to the Grant application, prior to approval of the Grant application by the Rebel Sport Grants Selection Committee. Dates applied for prior to the application being considered may also be deemed retrospective.

3. Payments

3.1 Generally, Grants will be paid directly to the Grant Recipient by direct credit within one month of the application being approved. In instances where the funds have been provided for activities/projects that will not occur within the ensuing six months, these funds may be held until written confirmation is received to show that the project/activity is nearly underway. If these funds are not requested within the financial year that they were approved, the Grant may be withdrawn.

3.2 The total amount of funding per a Grant application is $1,000-$10,000 (not subject to GST). The funding will be paid in a lump sum on the relevant quarterly Grant distribution date.

3.3 If the Grant is more than $[10,000], the Grant Recipient may be required to enter into a formal Grant agreement.

4. GST
4.1 When a Grant Recipient is GST registered, a Grant will only be made for the GST exclusive component.

4.2 When a Grant Recipient is not GST registered, a Grant may be made for the full GST inclusive cost of the good or service.
