Grants for Women program

Funding available through the Department of Local Government and Communities’ Women’s Grants program has doubled from $100,000 to $200,000. 

The Grants for Women program enables eligible community organisations and local governments to secure funding for projects that encourage women's economic independence and/or encourage women's leadership.

Importantly, the grant application period has been removed, allowing applications to be made any time of the year. This will enable organisations to apply for funding for projects that benefit women at any time, and in response to issues and opportunities as they arise.  

The program has now been split into two streams:

  • up to $5,000 for one-off activities or initiatives with a duration of up to six months
  • up to $10,000 for longer term, more strategic and sustainable initiatives.
