Last published on 02 May 2020 in News and Media Releases

Organisations with projects which empower women to achieve their goals can apply for a share in $400,000 in NSW Government funding, Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor announced today.

“We hope to hear from groups with innovative ideas for women’s economic opportunity and advancement, community participation and health and wellbeing,” Mrs Taylor said.

“Right now we are experiencing tough times but we will get through this. Promoting women’s participation will lead to benefits for the entire community by increasing innovation, productivity and prosperity.”

Since 2013, the Investing in Women funding program has provided more than $1.8 million to projects which support women in a range of objectives from employment and training to leadership development.

The program is aligned with the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-2022 which fosters:

  • economic opportunity and advancement;
  • health and wellbeing; and
  • participation and empowerment

Past projects include a coffee cart which provides valuable skills to Aboriginal women, a business leadership program and mental health first aid training for women in regional and remote NSW.

“These are just a few examples of projects which have helped change women’s lives and shape a better future,” Mrs Taylor said.

There are three funding tiers for projects depending on their stage of development.

Funding applications open at 9am (AEST) on Monday 27 April 2020 and close at 11:59pm (AEST) on Monday 25 May 2020.
