Safe Places Emergency Accommodation

Safe Places Emergency Accommodation

The Australian Government is inviting eligible organisations to apply for capital grants under the Safe Places Emergency Accommodation program from 2020-21 to 2021-22. The objective of the grant opportunity is to deliver new emergency and crisis accommodation for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence. It could also fund purchasing/ renovations/repurposing of buildings, where it creates new emergency accommodation.

It is important that accommodation delivered under this grant provides access to appropriate and specialist support for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence. Applicants who are not a domestic and family violence specialist, are required to provide evidence of a formal partnership with a domestic and family violence specialist service, or specialist Indigenous service, or Culturally and Linguistically Diverse service, that is ongoing and sustainable and must demonstrate an understanding of domestic and family violence.

The Government intends to maximise the return on its investment, the grant opportunity will prefer projects that bring together:

  • different participants to deliver the most effective model
  • contributions (whether cash or in-kind) from other levels of government, and from private and philanthropic sources.

To be eligible you must be one of the following entity types:

  • Commonwealth Company
  • Company
  • Corporate State or Territory Entity
  • Incorporated Association
  • Indigenous Corporation
  • Local Government
  • Statutory Entity
  • Trustee on behalf of a Trust

Applications close: 14 February 2020
