How much can I apply for?

There is no limit to the amount that you or your organisation can apply for. However, due to high demand for limited funds, the Lottery Minister’s Discretionary Fund cannot often provide grants to the level requested and is more likely to contribute towards the project. The amount granted is at the Minister’s discretion, and depends on the funds available and the number and quality of the requests received.

How much money can I request?

Grants over $10,000 can be made only to organisations with legal entity status. Make sure you've filled in the ‘legal entity status’ section of your organisation profile in our online system. For any other funding limits, you will need to check the details for the type of grant you are requesting.
