Funding and support

Seed funding for ACTA was provided by the Victorian Department of Health in 2013, with a second allocation of funding from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services in 2016. We acknowledge the vision shown by Victoria in helping to establish ACTA as a national resource. In 2015, the Western Australia Department of Health announced seed funding to support ACTA’s development in collaboration with Victoria as a matched contribution.

In 2017, ACTA was awarded a $5 million Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) grant ‘Strengthening the capacity, efficiency and effectiveness of Clinical Trials Networks through the Australian Clinical Trials Alliance‘. We completed this grant activity in November 2020.

In 2020, ACTA was awarded a ‘2020–2024 MRFF Enhancing Clinical Trials Network Capabilities Grant‘. This is an active grant that aims to consolidate and strengthen sector capability and collaboration, with the aim of embedding evidence-based care in the health system and improving health outcomes.
