Investing in Queensland women gets a powerful boost

The Queensland Government has announced a supercharged Investing in Queensland Women grant program, with $540,000 available to support projects that improve the lives of women and girls.

The program will now deliver grants of up to $25,000 (up from $15,000), allowing projects that tackle crucial issues like sexual, domestic, and family violence prevention, women’s workforce participation and mentoring and leadership opportunities, to achieve greater impact.

By merging Rounds 1 and 2 for 2024 into one supercharged round, community groups now have 12 months (instead of 6) to implement their initiatives.

Community groups and organisations are encouraged to apply if their projects promote safety and wellbeing for women and girls; empower their voices and leadership skills; and create lasting positive change within communities.

The program further prioritises projects that promote respectful and healthy relationships, enhance women’s health and wellbeing, and expand career pathways for women in traditionally male-dominated fields.

Building on a strong foundation, since 2021, the Investing in Queensland Women program has funded 169 impactful initiatives across urban, rural, and remote regions.

These 169 projects have contributed to inspiring and encouraging gender quality throughout Queensland.

Community groups and organisations throughout Queensland can apply for the super round grant now! Applications close 5:00pm Friday, 12 April.
