Applications are now open for the 2023 NSW Women’s Week Grants Program, with $100,000 in funding available for women-focused events held between 6-12 March, 2023.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has encouraged local councils and not-for-profit organisations to apply for a share of the funding to hold events that celebrate and connect women and girls across the region.
“NSW Women’s Week is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and accomplishments of women and girls in the region,” Ms Cooke said.
Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said NSW Women’s Week is a time to shine a light on what we can do to bring women together, share our strengths, support each other and work towards gender equality.
“I urge organisations to submit their applications to help them deliver these important events for their local community,” Mrs Taylor said.
Events funded by the grants program must support at least one of the key priorities of the NSW Women’s Strategy 2023-26:
· Economic opportunity and advancement
· Health and wellbeing
· Participation and empowerment
Applications close Sunday, 4 December 2022. Apply online at: https://www.nsw.gov.au/grants-and-funding/nsw-womens-week-grant
