NSW Government Investing in Women Funding Program

NSW Government Investing in Women Funding Program

The Investing in Women funding program funds NSW organisations to develop and implement projects that: improve women’s financial wellbeing and security and support diverse and flexible employment opportunities for women and girls; promote and support a holistic approach to women’s health across the lifespan; and support women’s engagement through social networks, access to information and building confidence using diverse representation of women and girls.

The 2019 Investing in Women funding program will fund projects according to stages of development. There are three categories of grant funding available for this grant round:

  • Explore and scope: Up to $25,000 - projects that are at an early stage and organisations are looking to explore and develop a project.

  • Replication and sustainability: Up to $100,000 - projects that have been tested and show strong outcomes, have demonstrated ongoing viability and are looking to be taken to the next level of impact and self-sustainability.
