What are the priorities for Lottery Environment and Heritage funding?

Grant decisions are made by the Lottery Environment and Heritage Committee.
Before deciding, the committee looks at how your project will help to:

Natural heritage: 
  • protect and restore habitats and ecosystems for native plants or animals 
  • protect and conserve native plants or animals that are rare, in danger or at risk in their habitats 
  • improve public access and information about native plants and animals. 
Physical heritage:
  • restore and protect places, structures or large built objects of significance to our history 
  • protect and conserve a place, structure or large built object for the future 
  • improve public access and information about places, structures or large built objects of significance to our history 
Cultural heritage:
  • protect collections that are at risk of being damaged or lost 
  • make collections available to the community 
  • improve public access and information, particularly for young people to learn about and experience our cultural heritage 
  • conserve and protect moveable cultural property, such as photographs, paintings, furniture and other artefacts.
