Preventing Tech-based Abuse of Women Grants Program 

The Preventing Tech-based Abuse of Women Grants Program, led by eSafety, is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to improving the safety of Australian women and their children through the prevention of technology-facilitated gender-based violence.

The program will be delivered from 2023 to 2028 with a total of $10 million available over at least three rounds.

The program forms part of the Government’s commitment to the aims and objectives of the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-32 (the National Plan). The National Plan highlights the need to understand and factor in the role of technology in addressing violence against women and their children.

Detailed program information can be found in the Program Guidelines.
