Applications opening for $10m grants fund to stop tech-based abuse of women
The Australian Government is calling for applications to fund innovative projects that help put a stop to technology-based abuse against women under a new $10 million grants program.
The Preventing Tech-based Abuse of Women Grants Program is led by the eSafety Commissioner as part of the National Plan to end violence against women and children 2022-32.
Under the initiative, non-government organisations can apply for grants of up to $500,000 to develop primary prevention projects addressing the underlying drivers, attitudes and behaviours which lead some people to use technology to stalk, threaten, control or undermine women, or carry out other violent or coercive behaviours.
The guidelines are available at eSafety.gov.au/grants.
More details are available from the Minister for Communications media release.
