Lotterywest establishes $159m Covid-19 relief fund

The WA State Government has allocated Lotterywest’s direct grants budget to a new Covid-19 relief fund, worth up to $159 million.

The funding will be used to support organisations helping people experiencing hardship, and will provide urgent financial relief for not-for-profit arts, sports and community organisations. Grants will compensate for cancellation costs, lost revenue and other operational costs from cancelled events.

The fund comprises $59 million in immediately available funds, as well as up to $100 million additional funds to be raised through future Lotterywest sales.

Eligible organisations can apply immediately for grant support. For more information about the program, click here.
