Queensland Government media release

The latest round of the Investing in Queensland Women grant program is open for applications as part of this year’s Queensland Women’s Week celebrations, with grants of up to $15,000 on offer for local organisations to deliver initiatives to empower and support women and girls.

The grant program will support community groups and organisations across Queensland’s urban, rural and remote regions with resources to lead projects and events designed to create positive change for women and girls.

Applications are being sought for projects aimed at addressing issues including domestic and family violence, sexual violence prevention, respectful and healthy relationships, mentoring and leadership opportunities, career pathways into construction and women’s health.

Creating a positive impact on the future of women and girls through the grant program is one way the Queensland Government is delivering upon the theme for this year’s Queensland Women’s Week, Empower her voice; secure her future.

Queensland Women’s Week has been running annually in March since 2016, and is an expansion of International Women’s Day providing a week-long, state-wide celebration to recognise the successes and achievement of women and girls across Queensland.

Applications close on Friday, 24 March 2023. Further details of grant program are available here.
