Councils and not-for-profit groups participating in NSW Women’s Week can access $100,000 in funding support to host an event.
Running from 7 to 13 March 2022, the event will deliver a range of community, education and mentoring opportunities for women and girls in NSW.
For organisations to be eligible for funding, events should support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2018-22:
- improving women’s financial wellbeing and security
- encouraging a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, or
- helping women to build confidence and celebrate their achievements.
Women’s Minister Bronnie Taylor said NSW Women’s Week events will not only bring women and girls together in a COVID-safe setting, but also provide practical support to help women across the state.
“NSW Women’s Week is a special opportunity to celebrate women from all walks of life including women living in our regional and rural communities, Aboriginal women and women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds,” Ms Taylor said.
Funding applications close 15 November 2021.
