WA Lotterywest: Community Spaces Outdoor Grant

WA Lotterywest: Community Spaces Outdoor Grant

Grants - Open grants

Closing Date – ONGOING
We support various types of community spaces. Our grants support both indoor areas, such as a community or interpretive centre, and outdoor facilities, including skate parks, playgrounds, memorials, and community gardens. We look to support spaces that encourage people to enjoy community life. Grants are available on an ongoing basis.

What we can support

  • Creation of skate parks
  • Development of playgrounds
  • Memorials marking our culture, heritage and community sentiment
  • Design of community gardens to promote sustainable living
  • Earthworks, play equipment and shade facilities
  • Temporary infrastructure that may make public spaces more welcoming for people

We don’t support the ongoing operation and maintenance of community spaces, or projects involving local council civil infrastructure.

What we’re looking for

  • Community and stakeholder support, including any foreseeable increases in community involvement resulting from the grant project
  • Planning that demonstrates the facility will meet community need. If you need support with planning please check out our organisational development grants or call us.
  • Ability of your organisation to manage and maintain the outdoor space
  • Long term viability of the space and your organisation
  • Contributions from relevant sources.
  • Safe, secure and affordable spaces that are open to the whole community, and are accessible and usable for people with disabilities
  • Planning and building approvals with compliance to relevant codes, standards, and legislation
  • Consideration of heritage and environmental factors
