LOTTERYWEST GRANTS AVAILABLE IN WA
Lotterywest’s purpose to build a better Western Australia together has never been more relevant in these uncertain times. The State Government, through Lotterywest, is committing $159 million into a COVID-19 Relief Fund to respond to the hardship being experienced by the Western Australian community as a result the COVID-19 pandemic.
This fund will comprise the following programs:
CRISIS & EMERGENCY RELIEF
Applications for this program will be accepted immediately. Support is available for Western Australian not-for-profit community sector organisations and local government authorities to provide crisis and emergency relief services to:
• People currently experiencing hardship that are at risk of becoming entrenched in disadvantage due to the crisis.
• People newly experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19; and
• Those that are most at risk of serious infection (immune compromised, older people, diagnosed chronic medical conditions, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples).
Lotterywest will help meet costs related to increased demand for crisis relief services; working differently in the current climate; and supporting collaboration to address the increased demand. Information regarding the assessment criteria for this program can be found here.
If you have an existing grant to deliver emergency relief services and believe you need a variation to that grant, Lotterywest will work with you to meet these needs.
EVENT CANCELLATION RELIEF FOR ARTS, SPORTS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS
Support will be available for not-for-profit arts, sports and community organisations that are experiencing financial hardship as a result of a cancelled event resulting from COVID-19. This program will consider cancellation costs, loss of revenue and incurred and/or committed costs related to events that delivered broad community benefit.
Lotterywest will be working directly with sports, arts and community groups to deliver this program in collaboration with the Department of Local Government, Sports and Cultural Industries and Venueswest.
