Applications are now being accepted for the ACT Women’s Grants Program 2016-2017 which provides funding for initiatives aimed at improving the safety, status, health and well-being of women and girls in the ACT.
Priority will be given to initiatives which address violence against women and/or the broad range of factors which impact on women’s health and wellbeing.
There are two grant categories:
- ACT Women’s Safety Grants of up to $15 000 for community organisations to enable innovative projects in the area of the prevention of violence against women.
- Women’s Participation Grants for projects which promote the health and wellbeing of women and girls, including through enhancing gender equality. In this category, community organisations can apply for a grant of up to $10 000 and individuals can apply for a grant up to $2 000.
The ACT Women’s Grants Program provides an opportunity to make a real difference for women and girls in our community. Even small ideas can lead to significant and lasting change.
