How are payments made?
If your grant is approved we’ll send you a letter with the details of what’s been approved and what is required for payment to be made. We pay all grants by electronic funds transfer, so make sure the bank account details you’ve provide in your application are your organisation’s main operating account.
How do I acquit my 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's support?
Of course! It would actually be really appreciated. Public acknowledgment helps spread the word about Lotterywest’s role in the community, as well as assisting us with our ongoing grants work. It can also benefit your organisation.
This is a nice to have though - any acknowledgements of support you do will have no influence on our assessment of your application. Sharing the news shows you various ways in which you can tell your good news story.
What happens if my project or organisation details change?
Please tell us if details for your grant project or some of the people involved have changed. We can work with you in responding to any differing or changed circumstances.
We also need to know if the changes relate to your organisation's details such as bank details, name, delegated authority or GST status. For changes bank details, please complete our change of bank details form.
If the project itself, or key members have changed, please call us so we can work through a solution.
Can I get feedback if my proposal is not successful?
Definitely! You will receive feedback throughout the assessment of your application but you can always ring for more information. 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 the consideration of any future applications.
