The Grants-in-Aid Program was established in 2011 with the support of Founding Partner, Wilson HTM Foundation (now Pinnacle Charitable Foundation). The program supports Australian research into congenital/childhood heart disease.

The Grants-in-Aid program is unique as it provides funding for smaller projects (minimum $20,000 and maximum of $50,000 incl GST) with a shorter duration of 12 months maximum. The Grants-in-Aid are intended to support and grow research capacity specifically directed to congenital/childhood heart disease and enable pilot studies which may lead to larger, longer-term research projects.

The grant application process is also simpler than that of other research funding schemes; the application forms shorter, the decision process faster and hence a less demanding process on the applicants.
