Lottery Grants Board 2018/19 allocations

The Lottery Grants Board (the Board) has allocated $289 million of Lottery funding in 2018/19 for the benefit of communities across Aotearoa/New Zealand.

This funding will support a range of community activities and services, including activities to improve the environment, support marae in their cultural and capital aspirations, keep people safe outdoors and support organisations who are working with communities around the country.

The Board has allocated funding to its core committees, and provided additional one off-funding to the following distribution committees in 2018/19:

  • $3 million to Oranga Marae to support physical and cultural revitalisation of marae
  • $2 million to the Lottery Community Facilities Fund to support the building and maintenance of community facilities
  • $300k to the Minister’s Discretionary Fund to emphasise support for children’s organisations to help them to improve their financial planning and/or governance ability.

$26 million has been allocated to the Lottery Significant Projects Fund for a third consecutive year to assist with a range of significant and important community projects. A further $20 million has been allocated to help set up a new fund which will support community benefit relating to the America’s Cup in 2021. Detailed funding criteria and priorities and an implementation timeframe are being developed.

The Board will continue to support arts, culture and sporting initiatives through funding of $115.4 million to the four statutory bodies supported by the Board: the New Zealand Film Commission including Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision, Creative New Zealand and Sport New Zealand.
