Working with you

To build a better WA together with you, we need to understand what your project is and how it will impact the community.  

Making grants

With new needs and opportunities emerging all the time, flexibility is one of the main principles that guides our grant making. We will work with you to ensure that your application best reflects your idea and the benefit to the community, with priority areas and outcomes relating to the Community Investment Framework.

We recommend to our Board and the Premier proposals which are sound, value for money, and have a strong likelihood of delivering benefits for the Western Australian community. Talking with you and your community provides us with a thorough understanding of the specific needs, and how a grant will be best used. All applications are reviewed based on their individual merit, and we aim to conduct our work fairly from the grant development process, through to final approval.

Our team is based at Lotterywest Head Office in Subiaco, Perth, and we make regular visits to regional and remote WA, as well as around the metropolitan area. From Esperance to Kununurra, we have someone who understands your local community’s needs and is excited to help you to achieve your goals.

Throughout the entire journey we are committed to providing excellent customer service. Our Customer Commitments outlines how we will meet and exceed your needs.

Your local Lotterywest store could be just around the corner.


Our grant funds come from the sales of our lottery games achieved through the hard work of over 500 retailers throughout the State.

For every dollar they make, Lotterywest retailers add on commission and return 60 cents back to players as prizes. About one third of the dollar is returned to the public, either as grants directly managed by us or as statutory grant allocations, through the State Government, to health, arts and sport.  The remaining cents are for Lotterywest operating costs including the administration of grants.
