Safe and Diverse Communities Grants

The Queensland Government has committed additional funding of $6 million over 4 years to support the prevention of sexual, domestic and family violence in multicultural communities, and $1 million of this funding is committed to facilitating partnerships in multicultural communities through a grant program.

The funds will be available over 4 years, with $250,000 available each year of the grant program, with 2021 applications invited for initiatives seeking funding from $10,000 to $25,000.

The Safe and Diverse Communities Grants program aims to create meaningful partnerships and engagement with people from diverse backgrounds to take proactive steps in improving women’s safety, and through awareness and prevention initiatives to address sexual, domestic and family violence.

Applicants must be a not-for-profit, a local government entity, or have an auspice agreement with the aforementioned.

Applications close on Friday, 12 November at 5:00pm. Find out more or apply.

Two online community forums will be held during the application open period to support applicants and answer any questions about the guidelines and application process. You can find out more information about these forums here.
