Funder: Federal – Social Services
Grant Background: The Australian Government is inviting eligible organisations, via an open competitive process, 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.
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.
