In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the State Government, through Lotterywest, has allocated all profits of the Lottery (up to $159 million) directly into the newly created COVID-19 Relief Fund.
Between March 2020 and June 2020, the first phase of the Fund prioritised addressing the immediate hardship being experienced by individuals and community organisations. Lotterywest is now in the second phase of their COVID-19 Relief Fund, which is focused on three grant programs and includes a mixture of open applications, an Expression of Interest (EOI) process, and applications by invitation.
For further information, visit the Lotterywest page to see the overview of the current programs and how they will roll these out over the 2020-21 financial year.
