NSW Women’s Week Grants Program in Australia
The NSW Government has announced NSW Women’s Week Grants Program to reflect on the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and girls and promote gender equality.
NSW Women’s Week events or activities will need to align with at least one of the three targeted priorities that women from across NSW have consistently said are important to them in the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022:
Economic opportunity and advancement
Health and wellbeing
Participation and empowerment
Funding amount: Minimum $3,000 and must not exceed $5,000 (excluding GST).
Project timeline: Proposed projects must be ready for launch in NSW Women’s Week, Monday 7 – Sunday 13 March 2022
Eligible and Ineligible Uses
Grant funding can be used for the direct costs of the event/activity, including promotion, entertainment, catering, venue hire and transport for participants.
Grants cannot be used to fund the following:
any activity of a commercial nature that is for-profit
capital works including building work
permanent salaries/ wages (costs for temporary tutors/ instructors for your project or event can be included)
permanent equipment purchases, e.g. tables and computers
business as usual costs or general operating expenses
events that encourage gambling such as bingo, or the consumption of alcohol
projects and activities coordinated by NSW Government Departments and Statutory Authorities
NSW Women’s Week Grants are open to all incorporated not-for-profit community organisations that are registered and approved as not-for-profit bodies by NSW Fair Trading.
NSW local councils (and their section 355 committees) operating under the Local Government Act (1993) are obliged to cash match or provide in-kind support up to the value of $5000.
Note: Organisations listed on the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) Register must have a current record.
