NSW Sexual Violence Project Fund

The NSW Sexual Violence Project Fund, administered by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ), is a grants program that will fund a range of one-off and time-limited sexual violence early intervention and response projects that address and respond to sexual violence. 

The fund is expected to open in late February 2023 and will provide almost $10 million in grants to support projects for up to two years focusing on high priority groups and settings, including:

  • Women and children at risk of or experiencing sexual violence
  • First Nations people
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse communities
  • Rural and remote communities
  • LGBTIQ+ people
  • Older women
  • Children and young people (in particular, those who have experienced trauma, sexual and domestic violence or who are in or leaving out-of-home care)
  • People with disability.

Register your interest!

DCJ invites organisations to register their interest in applying for funding by completing the Registration of Interest form.

The information received will support DCJ to refine the NSW Sexual Violence Project Fund grant guidelines and best meet identified needs, improving the responsiveness and relevance of the fund.

The Registration of Interest will close on 27 January 2023.
