Projects Fund

The Projects Fund provides funding assistance in support of Yukoners living healthy, active lives engaged in and having access to arts, sport and recreation. The Projects Fund provides several ways for non-profits to access funding for arts, sport or recreation projects including:

  • Regular Intakes in April and October for small, medium and large projects;
  • Opportunity Projects – ongoing intake for small projects that present a special, non-recurring opportunity;
  • Three Year Plan Recipients –projects that are recurring, low risk, high benefit were selected in January 2018 as Three Year Plan Recipients; and,
  • Strategic Partnerships – partnerships identified by the Yukon Lottery Commission that have demonstrated success in delivering arts, sport or recreation projects or programs across the Yukon.

Approximately $1.4 million will be allocated to the Projects Fund each fiscal year for 3 years starting in 2018/19. Unused budgets for the Projects Fund will accumulate in the Projects Fund for future use which may result in increases to budget limits within the spending levels for different components of the Projects Fund.

To determine whether your project meets the Projects Fund criteria refer to the Projects Fund Guidelines and discuss your project with Lotteries Yukon.

Please contact the Lotteries Yukon office for the Projects Fund application and reporting forms.
