We’re returning to grant making under the Community Investment Framework

From July 2021, Lotterywest will return to grant making under its Community Investment Framework.  The Framework sets out five key priority areas and desired outcomes to benefit the WA community.

We will be looking to support eligible organisations that demonstrate how their grant contributes towards achieving one, or multiple outcomes in their community.

Our transition back to the Framework and improvements to our grant making process is underway. Applications for the Framework will open 1 July 2021.

Our usual timeframe from application to customers receiving an outcome is 3 to 4 months. If timing is a concern, please call us to discuss.

Please register here to stay up to date with information about Lotterywest grants.

Here to talk to you

The Lotterywest team is here to talk to you and to help you explore what support may be available in the future.

Our grant making approach recognises the importance of working together. We will work with you to help develop your proposal and make sure it provides the relevant information.

Alongside Healthway, our team is based at our office in Subiaco, Perth. We have strong relationships across regional and remote WA, as well as around the metropolitan area. We’re working in new ways to stay connected, including video-conferencing, to ensure our team understands your needs to help you achieve your goals. 

Throughout the grant journey, we are committed to providing excellent customer service.
