How will I know if my application has been approved?
We give written advice on the outcome of all applications. If your grant is approved, we will advise you of payment arrangements and our requirements for acquitting the funds.
How are payments made?
Once a grant is approved, we will send you a letter telling you what has been approved and what is required for payment to be made.
Grants are paid through an electronic funds transfer. Please make sure that the bank account details you provide in your application are those of your organisation’s main operating account.
Payment Request Form
If your grant approval letter asks you to submit a Payment Request Form you can download it here.
Acquittal of your grant
All organisations who receive our support are accountable for the expenditure of a grant within a given timeframe. Our grant acquittal processes are very simple and are explained once your grant is approved. It’s important to read your grant approval letter.
Generally grant acquittal will require you to:
- Comply with the grant agreement
- Meet any grant conditions
- Show expenditure of the grant by providing copies of invoices or receipts
or by submitting a completed Payment Request Form
Can I acknowledge Lotterywest support?
Yes, we would appreciate publicity of your grant, although the potential for this in no way influences our assessment. Most organisations are happy to acknowledge the support Lotterywest has provided and we know that this can also be of benefit to your organisation. Your grant approval letter will detail whether or not we have asked you to acknowledge our support. For more information please click here.
What happens if my project or organisation details change?
If your grant project or some of the people involved have changed, please tell us. We can work with you in responding to any differing or changed circumstances. If the changes relate to your organisation's details such as bank details, name, delegated authority or GST status, please complete one of our change of details forms.
Can I get feedback if my proposal is not successful?
Yes, you will receive feedback along the way from the member of our Grants team who is assessing your application. Our team focuses on building relationships and we are always happy to talk about your needs and ideas.
Can I request that a grant recommendation be reviewed?
Yes, the request should be made in writing to the Lotterywest CEO and signed by your organisation's Chairperson or authorised delegate within 60 working days of receiving formal advice of the decision. Please include the reason for the request and what you seek as resolution. We will advise you of the outcome as soon as possible. A request will not impact on the consideration of any subsequent applications.
