The NSW Domestic and Family Violence Blueprint for Reform 2016-2021: Safer Lives for Women, Men and Children identifies the need for an increased focus on prevention and early intervention strategies to achieve a substantial and continued reduction in the rate of domestic and family violence, as well as the need for victims of domestic and family violence to receive flexible, timely and person-centred support.

To achieve this, in 2016 the NSW Government announced a $20 million Domestic and Family Violence Innovation Fund.

Round 1 of the Innovation Fund was finalised in June 2017. Information on the successful projects from Round 1 can be found here.

The Innovation Fund Round 2 will provide up to $10 million in funding for new and innovative projects in the following areas:

  • Prevention
  • Early intervention
  • Crisis responses to domestic and family violence

The Innovation Fund is now inviting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for Round 2. EOIs close 5:00pm Friday 20 October, and can be submitted at https://womennsw.smartygrants.com.au/
