Grants and funding

Property Management Planning

The four stage PMP program looks at your personal business drivers, develop a comprehensive property map and plan, conduct a financial analysis of your business and plan the way forward for implementing change.

While the development of a comprehensive environmental mapping plan is key to the process, the program goes further to help participants identify their personal motivation and business drivers, as well as work with a professional to develop a financial business management report. All personal financial details shared between participants and the advisers are confidential and are not available to the Board or its staff. At the end of the program, all properties will finish with an Action Plan.
