Funding boost to help domestic violence victims


NSW domestic and family violence services experiencing increased demand as a result of COVID-19 can now apply for a share of $9 million in Federal Government funding. The COVID-19 Sexual, Domestic and Family Violence Grant Program offers one-off grants between $20,000 and $150,000 to eligible services. To be eligible for funding, applicants must:

  • Provide a direct and frontline service to people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, sexual, domestic and family violence, or provide services or programs for perpetrators, as part of their overall service delivery model, and

  • Be established in NSW and operational.

Eligible applicants may include not-for-profit organisations including community organisations and/or faith based organisations. The announcement follows the $21 million investment in frontline domestic violence support services delivered by the Federal and NSW governments in May. Grant applications are now open and will close on September 23. To apply, click here and complete the online application form via the SmartyGrants portal.
