Lotterywest is here to help your organisation assist people currently in crisis related to COVID-19 and avoid entrenched disadvantage.
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 support social and economic recovery from the pandemic.
The Lotterywest accepts applications from $3,000 upwards.
– The limit for unincorporated groups or organisations not GST registered is a combined total of up to $15,000 for each financial year.
• 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.
