Community Investment Framework

Lotterywest and Healthway grants ensure that Western Australia’s health, sports and arts sectors, as well as thousands of local government authorities and not-for-profit groups are supported in their valuable contribution to the community.

The coming together of Lotterywest and Healthway created an opportunity to align our grant making strategy, and build synergies to maximise our community support through a shared Community Investment Framework.

The Framework is designed to achieve our visions by setting five priority areas and desired outcomes to benefit the Western Australian community. The Framework will measure impact, incorporating mechanisms to show what was achieved, and how the community benefited.

Understanding the positive impact our grants make in the community means we know how we are helping to build a better and healthier Western Australia.

Transition to the Framework is underway and will be implemented over the next few months. 

Lotterywest and Healthway will continue to work alongside organisations to provide guidance through the application process. You can find out more about the Community Investment Framework by talking with your Lotterywest Grants contact person, your Healthway Program Officer or through our  FAQs. We are always keen to hear about your grant idea and explore ways we might provide support.

Applications will need to relate to one of the Framework’s five priority areas with a demonstrated community benefit related to one or more of the priority area outcomes.
