Exploratory grants now open

The 2023 Targeted Research Round – Exploratory grant category is now open.

This round will provide funding to eligible organisations for exploratory or formative studies that focus on Contemporary Measurement of Health Behaviours aligned with Healthway’s priority health areas. We are seeking funding requests for research focused on identifying new and innovative ways to measure health behaviours.  The Intervention grant category will not be offered in this funding round, however there is an increased level of funding available of up to $200,000 for up to two years for salary, project and support costs. This increased level of funding is offered for this round to take into consideration the level of innovation sought.

Please read the guidelines below before submitting a request to the Grants Portal.

If you’re invited to submit a full request (Stage 2), this will need to be made through the new Lotterywest Healthway Grants Portal. All requests are encouraged to sign up to the Grants Portal.

To use the new Lotterywest Healthway Grants Portal, please note the following:

  • All grant requests must be submitted through the new Portal.  Hard copy grant requests will no longer be accepted by email.
  • All users and organisations will need to be registered prior to submitting a grant request through the Portal. 
  • Email addresses must be unique to the user and can only be registered once (e.g. john.smith@organisation.com or chairperson@organisation.com or john.smith@bigpond.com). To ensure data and user details are secure, generic email addresses such as admin@organisation.com or reception@organisation.com can no longer be accepted.
  • Once your organisation is approved, you will need to enter the portal and update all of your organisation information and attach mandatory documents prior to submitting a grant request.  Once submitted, our Customer Service Team will review and validate the organisation details.
  • You may begin drafting a grant request while your organisation details are in the process of being validated; however, you will not be able to submit a grant request until your organisation details have been validated.

As the registration and validation process may take some time, we strongly encourage users and organisations to register and update their organisation details as early as possible to avoid the risk of not being able to submit a grant request by the grant request deadline. For further guidance on the Portal please review our Grantee how-to guide.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us on 133 777, healthway@healthway.wa.gov.au or find out more about the Portal here.
