DISTRIBUTION OF LOTTERYWEST FUNDING
Equestrian WA has been fortunate to be granted $300,000 from the Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries and Lotterywest, for the COVID-19 Resilience Funding. A sum of $220,000 will go towards the support of operations of the Equestrian WA and the State Equestrian Centre.

Jumping (26.77%) $21,416
Eventing (51.33%) $41,064
Dressage (18.1%) $14,800
Show Horse (3.8%) $4,500
A proposal outlining the planned grant expenditure will need to be submitted and approved by the EWA board prior to the distribution of funds which will be allocated before the 31st July 2021 for submission of the grant acquittal report to the government on the 27th August 2021.
