Women's Funding Grants
Tuesday, 13th April 2004 at 1:04 pm

National women’s non-government organisations are invited to apply for up to $50,000 in funding under the Australian Government’s 2004-05 Women’s Development Program.

In 2003-04 more than $500,000 has been distributed to develop projects such as a communication skills workshop for health professionals who treat cancer patients from multicultural, Indigenous and geographically isolated communities.

The Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women, Senator Kay Patterson says the funding will continue to build women’s capacities in a range of areas.

The grants are available in two categories – for development projects and for capacity building activities.

Funding of up to $50,000 is available for projects or research relevant to current women’s issues, but is not intended to cover day-to-day operational costs.

In addition, organisations that want to strengthen their operational effectiveness and increase their ability to contribute to the development of public policy can apply for capacity building grants of up to $25,000.

Current grant recipients include the Australian Multiple Birth Association, the Australian Women’s Motorsport Network, Project Respect, the Australian Breastfeeding Association and the Women Industry Network Seafood Community.

In last year’s funding round, 14 national women’s organisations received funding totalling nearly $520,000 for projects and activities ranging from a history of Indigenous nursing to mentoring women in the automotive industry.

Application details are available on the Office of the Status of Women website at www.osw.dpmc.gov.au. Applications close at the end of May 2004.
