New grants portal launching

Soon we’ll be launching a new Lotterywest Healthway Grants Portal to manage our grants.

In one easy and central location, you’ll be able to request funding, track progress and manage your approved grant.

As we transition, we will need to shutdown our current grant management system for both Healthway and Lotterywest. This means you’ll be unable to apply for funding or manage your current grant from 16 June to 30 July 2023. Please note that we will continue to accept research applications only during the shutdown period. 

We appreciate your patience and encourage you to factor the six-week shutdown when planning your grant. 

Key Dates

  • 16 June 2023: Shutdown commences for Healthway and Lotterywest’s current grant management system.
  • 31 July 2023: New Lotterywest Healthway Grants Portal launches.

Our priority is to make sure you’re supported through this process and the transition is easy as possible. Please contact us on 133 777 or for support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lotterywest Healthway Grants Portal

Healthway and Lotterywest are launching a new Grants Management System (GMS) to provide a better experience for grant applicants by introducing the Lotterywest Healthway Grants Portal. From 31 July 2023, you’ll be able to apply for grants, track progress and manage your approved grants from one central location.

A GMS is a web-based platform that supports the management of the entire grant life cycle and allows organisations like us, to manage grants from application submission through to acquittal.

Our new GMS will bring together Lotterywest and Healthway grants management to a centralised Portal, streamlining the process for applicants. You will be able to access Lotterywest and Healthway services from a single login, where you can view a live status of your grant request as it progresses through the approval and acquittal process.

You can:

  • Request a new Lotterywest or Healthway grant.
  • Update your organisation’s details including adding governance documents, annual reports, and financial statements.
  • View your organisation’s grant history, including past and current grant requests.
  • Submit variation requests for current grants.
  • Report on your grant, including submitting progress and final acquittal reports.
  • View upcoming payments for active grants.

Shutdown Period

While we transition to the new Portal, there will be a six-week shutdown period from 16 June to 30 July 2023 where funding requests, acquittal documents and payment requests are unable to be processed. This means the Lotterywest Grants Portal, Grants Management Tool, and Healthway Application and Acquittal Forms will be closed during this time. You will be unable to apply for new grants or manage your current grant during this time.

To allow for an efficient and secure transfer, we need to temporarily shut down transactions. We understand that this may cause disruption for some of our supported organisations and we’re here to support you during the transition. You can contact us on 133 777, or if you need assistance.

You’ll be unable to submit an application during the shutdown period. If you have submitted a request, assessment and approval of that request may take longer than usual. Please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your grant idea and the best time to submit your request. Development of funding requests will also continue, so please reach out to discuss your potential project.

If you currently have a grant scheduled to be acquitted, paid or a claim made during the shutdown period, please contact us. During this time, you’ll be unable to make a claim or receive a payment. We’ll work with you to find an alternative time to acquit or make a claim, so that you’re not financially disadvantaged. If you have something due during this period, please contact us and we’ll assist you.

New Portal Preparation

We’re committed to responding to you in a timely manner, however there may be some delays as we transition. We appreciate your patience. If you haven’t received a response within two business days, get in touch with us on 133 777.  Priority will be given to those current supported organisations, events, and projects with time-critical deadlines.

We’ll be providing more information and resources as we get closer to launch, and guidelines and supporting documents will be available on the Portal. If you have questions prior to the launch, please contact us on 133 777, or

We can provide a copy of request forms so you can prepare your submission prior to the launch of the Portal. Once live, you’ll need to transcribe this information into the Portal to successfully submit your request.

New Portal How-to

You’ll be able to login after the Portal is launched on 31 July 2023.

  • Legal signatories for all current Lotterywest and Healthway supported organisations will be sent an email with their username and instructions on how to set up a password.
  • The contact person for recently submitted requests and active grants will also be emailed with their username and instructions on how to set up a password.

  • Note: It will take up to two business days for new users to be granted access.

Yes. All previous requests will be available for viewing in the Portal.

You will no longer need to make a claim in the new Portal. If your payment is subject to conditions (e.g. provision of a progress report) you’ll need to complete the appropriate report in the Portal. Once that has been approved, your payment will be paid in the next weekly pay run.


You’ll need to register against each organisation. This means you’ll have more than one set of login details (one for each organisation).

It depends on the type of organisation and these details will be provided in the new Portal. Eligibility criteria is unchanged, and the required documents will remain the same as what’s currently required.

Healthway, the Western Australian Health Promotion Foundation, funds sport, arts, community activities, health promotion projects and research to inspire Western Australians to live healthier lives.

Lotterywest returns all available profits from its lottery to the WA community and its grant-making focuses on five priority areas:

  • Inclusive thriving community

  • Active healthy people (delivered in partnership with Healthway)

No. You will be able to register and login in the same place, and upload your organisation’s information to be verified once.

It depends on what type of organisation you are. You will need to meet the eligibility requirements for each of the respective funding organisations and the relevant program you’re seeking a grant for. 

Yes. As they’re separate organisations, you can apply to both if your organisation meets the eligibility requirements.

No. Lotterywest and Healthway have separate application and assessment processes. However, our team can work with you if you intend to apply to both organisations for the same request.

As the Portal is a central system for both Lotterywest and Healthway, the information provided in your funding request can be accessed by both organisations.

No. You’ll need to apply for funding to each organisation separately, however our team will assist to simplify the process.

No. Maximum amounts are separate and depend on what type of organisation you are and which program you are applying for. Lotterywest has a minimum request amount of $3,000.
