Projects Fund

Changes to the Projects Fund took effect April 1, 2019. For more information on these changes refer to the Projects Fund – Questions and Answers.

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 projects that are low risk, non-complex and are small in dollar value;
  • Three Year Plan Recipients – projects that are recurring, low risk, and high benefit have been identified in the Yukon Lottery Commission’s Three Year Plan (2018-2021); 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 $1.5 million is allocated to the Projects Fund for the 2019/20 fiscal year. Unused budgets for the Projects Fund will accumulate in the program for future use which may result in increases to funding streams within the program.

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