Funding Discretionary
All decisions of the State of Victoria in relation to a funding agreement are decisions for the State of Victoria in its absolute discretion. In particular:

• the State may treat an application as invalid and not consider it if it is received late, it is incomplete, it is not reasonably able to be understood, or it does not comply with these Guidelines;
• the State may request that an applicant confirm the details in their application (including by requesting an applicant to prove their identity and place of residence);
• the submission of an application does not guarantee funding and a successful applicant may not be granted the amount of funding they requested;
• the State may extend, cancel or amend the process for applying for funding at any time without an applicant’s consent.

The State of Victoria will not negotiate on its decision in relation to funding applications or the conditions of any funding that is granted.

• any action or claim that an applicant might bring in relation to an application for funding or its assessment;
• any loss or damage, including indirect and economic loss, which an applicant might suffer in the course of applying for or accepting the provision of funding; and
• any personal injury suffered in the course of applying for or accepting the provision of funding.

The above does not apply to any liability that the law does not allow the State of Victoria to exclude.
Applicants must pay all costs associated with their application. The State will not be responsible for paying any of those costs.

No Binding Agreement - No binding agreement, legal relationship or other understanding for the supply of funding will exist between the State of Victoria and any applicant unless and until they have signed a formal written funding agreement.
