Grants: Responding to COVID-19 in the sexual, domestic and family violence sector

The Queensland Government’s Responding to COVID-19 in the sexual, domestic and family violence sectors grants program offers one-off grants to support frontline sexual, domestic and family violence (DFV) services to respond to the challenges posed by COVID-19 by assisting services to:

  • Adapt service delivery, for example by making service adjustments or modifications to respond to changing client needs or social distancing requirements.
  • Expand service delivery, for example by increasing capacity to deliver more services to more clients.
  • Introduce new services, in accordance with demand arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funding has been allocated through the Commonwealth Government’s COVID-19 DFV Funding package to states and territories. Grants of between $50,000 to $150,000 are available to eligible applicants, with a total of $2 million available. Initiatives will need to be delivered by the end of December 2021, with reporting due by the end of January 2022.
