Our Experience

Our team of experts has rich and deep experience designing and delivering grant programs and associated initiatives between government and non-government entities.

Our government focus means we understand the complexities of your grant program, and your desire to ensure your agreements reduce red tape for grantees.

At Proximity, we work as part of your team to meet your objectives.

Skills and expertise

Proximity Advisors have a proven track record in providing practical and effective advisory services for large government grant programs and initiatives.

We have managed some of the largest Australian and State Government grant programs.

We have drafted grant agreements that are user friendly for grantees yet capture key performance metrics to enable reporting against benefits management and outcomes.

Our Advisors are technically excellent, and ‘right-size’ advice to ensure it is relevant to your program or initiative.

We have a deep understanding of the laws, policies and processes of government.
