Am I using the most recent version of the form?
We continue to make improvements to our forms.

If you've completed or partly completed your application form and are experiencing difficulties, please call the Lotterywest technical support line on 9340 5260 or toll free on 1800 173 088.
Why doesn't the 'Check my details' button recognise my organisation?
The 'Check my details with Lotterywest' button uses your bank account information to check if your organisation's details have previously been entered into our system.
If you think we have your organisation's information already, but the 'check details' function is not recognising your information, please check if you have entered your bank details and ABN correctly.
If your organisation's bank details have changed, or you are still experiencing difficulties, then please call the Grants Team on 9340 5270 or toll free on 1800 655 270 before continuing.
Can I re-use my application form?
You can't resubmit an application form that has already been submitted to Lotterywest. This is because every application form you download has a unique number so we can track its progress once it is received. Every time you wish to apply you must download a new form.
