Lotterywest

The Lotterywest is seeking applications for its grant program entitled: Supporting the Most Vulnerable. The aim of this program is to help the organisation assist people currently in crisis related to COVID-19 and avoid entrenched disadvantage.

Program Streams

This grant program has two streams:

  • Crisis and Emergency Relief - the objective of this stream is to help organisations providing support to people experiencing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19, to meet their immediate basic needs.
  • Prevention and Early Intervention - the objective of this stream is to support prevention and early intervention programs that address the longer term impacts and the social and economic consequences of the pandemic.

Funding Information

A total of up to $20m is available in 2020-21.

Program Outcomes

  • Crisis and Emergency Relief:
    • Organisations which provide support to people experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 crisis have support to help them to meet their immediate basic needs.
    • Those most vulnerable in the community who are already experiencing hardship that is exacerbated as a result of the COVID-19 crisis have support to meet their immediate basic needs to avoid becoming further entrenched in disadvantage.
  • Prevention and Early Intervention:
    • Secondary and longer-term impacts resulting from the social and economic consequences of the COVID-19 crisis are minimised through prevention and early intervention initiatives that are complementary to and reduce demand for government-funded intervention and welfare services.
    • Knowledge is shared to strengthen the community services sector to better respond to potential second or third waves of COVID-19.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities.
  • To be eligible for Lotterywest support, a grant request must be:
