Win the Day Organisation will accept grant applications on the proviso the family have provided a support letter from the social worker or practicing oncology doctor. In this letter it needs to state the following:
Date of diagnosis

Brief description of the family situation
Applications for assistance with accommodation will need to supply evidence that they have applied for the IPTAAS Scheme for travel and accommodation assistance. Win the Day grant will reimburse the remaining out of pocket costs the family may incur up to the value of $5000 per year.
If funds have been exhausted, families will be prioritised and placed on a waiting list for up to 6 months upon receiving their application.
Families will be supported up to 6 months after completing treatment for both the accommodation and nutrition grant.
All families will be contacted via email on the outcome of their application within 14 days of submitting it.
Initially, families in the ACT and NSW region will be able to apply for the funding assistance.
