What information do we need to provide about our organisation to support a Lottery Significant Projects Fund grant request?

You need to make sure your organisation profile in our online system is up-to-date and meets the requirements for organisations requesting a grant and supporting document requirements for organisations

This includes ensuring we can access your current annual financial statements or performance report, either online or saved as supporting documents uploaded to your organisation profile. The financial information requirements are here

What should be in place when we make a request to the Lottery Significant Projects Fund?

Grant requests to this Fund must show that:

  • you already have raised at least one-third of the total cost of the project in partnership funding (see below)
  • the project will be managed by a suitably qualified person, with relevant skills and experience in managing projects of this size and scope
  • all resource consent requirements have been met (note that building consent approval is likely to be a condition for a grant for a project that requires a building consent and does not yet have one).

What documents are required for a Lottery Significant Projects Fund grant request?

Grant requests must include:

  • a feasibility study 
  • other reports required for the project, such as a seismic assessment (Detailed Engineering Evaluation report) or any specialist reports determined by the nature of your project
  • a project plan and detailed timeline
  • a budget for the total project, showing both the anticipated income and expenditure, and evidence to support the cost of your project, such as a quantity surveyor’s report
  • concept drawings or floor plans
  • evidence of local or central government support
  • evidence of regional or national community support from appropriate sector organisations, such as Sport New Zealand, National Services Te Paerangi at Te Papa Tongarewa, the local District Health Board, Heritage New Zealand
  • for organisations that are not the landowner:
    • evidence of support for the project from the legal owner
    • proof that the public will have ongoing access.
