Please read information below to assist you in completing your application online.

Eligible works

If you are approved for eligible works, a voucher will be issued to you to either carry out ‘standard improvement works’ (see below) or a security audit.

The cost of the security audit is covered by the program (up to $2,000 for individual businesses).

Once the security audit has been completed, you will be able to seek quotes from a registered security supplier and apply for a voucher to carry out the work.

The co-contribution eligible works with a security audit for individual businesses and cluster applications is 50:50.

Standard improvement works

To enable businesses to carry out physical security improvement jobs more quickly, there is now a list of pre-approved standard improvements that can be funded without the need for a security audit.

If you are eligible, the following standard improvement works do not require a security audit:

  • access door repairs
  • access door replacement with heavy-duty, secure alternatives
  • lock works and hardware
  • security screens
  • window replacement with more secure alternatives
  • glass replacement with secure alternatives
  • lockable fencing.

If you are only intending to carry out standard improvement works, seek a quote from a registered security supplier and apply for a voucher to carry out the works.

The co-contribution for standard improvement works for individual businesses and cluster applications is 25:75 (business:government).

You may need to upload/submit attachments to support your application. This is very simple, but requires you to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.


A number of people can work on an application using the same log in details as long as only one person is working at a time. Ensure you save as you go.
