What does Lottery Individuals with Disabilities not fund?

In addition to what may not be funded by any Lottery committee, Lottery Individuals with Disabilities does not fund:

  • Changes to any property or building;
  • Items which are to be used only within the home;
  • Equipment that the Ministry of Health or any other body has agreed to fund, up to the amount of that funding (any cost over that amount may be funded);
  • Disabilities that have occurred as a result of an accident and are eligible for support from the Accident Compensation Corporation;
  • Items already purchased;
  • Repairs or maintenance to equipment; or
  • Requests from individuals who do not have a disability
  • Insurance

Insurance for equipment funded by the Lottery Individuals with Disabilities Fund is your responsibility.
