Funding to prevent gambling harm

We’re always looking for ways to engage local organisations, raise awareness and achieve positive outcomes in preventing and reducing gambling harm.

The Office of Responsible Gambling and the NSW Government offer a wide range of grants and other funding to businesses, universities community organisations and schools. Take a look and get inspired to make a difference.

Local Prevention Grants Program

In February 2020, we offered community, not-for-profit and other local organisations the opportunity to apply for funding to reduce or prevent gambling harm.

Gambling research capacity grants

The objective of these grants is to improve the quality, diversity and impact of Australian gambling research by supporting talented and committed researchers.

Prevention, innovation and technology grants

We’re always looking for projects undertaken by experts from a variety of disciplines to find innovative ways to leverage technology and deliver responsible gambling education, services and outcomes more effectively.

Research grants

In 2019, we offered funding of $30,000 to $350,000 for research proposals that built the evidence base for responsible gambling policy, interventions and programs as outlined in our Strategic Plan 2018–2021.

Community benefit payment scheme

If a local venue applies for more gaming machines, not-for-profit organisations and registered charities that support the social wellbeing of the local community may be eligible for payments for responsible gambling, problem gambling, health and crisis support.

Odds on Youth

A powerful grants program designed to build the capacity of youth organisations and councils to reduce gambling harm among the young people who use their services. We’ll help you develop programs and apply for Odds on Youth funding of up to $60,000.
