We assess Caravan Parks Grant Program applications and award grant funding by merit.

This involves assessing applications:

  • against the eligibility criteria
  • through a competitive process with other applications.

The Austrade Program Delegate's decision is final in all matters including approval. This is consistent with the Commonwealth Grant Rules and Guidelines. This grant does not have an option for appeals.

Assessment criteria

We score your application based on 3 assessment criteria. These are:

  1. Project alignment with program objectives and outcomes (40 points)
  2. Capacity, capability, and resources to deliver the project (30 points)
  3. Project alignment with THRIVE 2030 and your commitment to the visitor economy (30 points).

Please refer to the Caravan Parks Grant Program Guidelines for:

  • a full description of the criteria
  • important information about how the assessment process works.


We assess applications after the closing date. We will notify you by email once a decision has been made on your application.

You should be ready to start your project in early 2023 after you have signed a grant agreement with us.
