The NSW Sexual Violence Project Fund is open from 28 February 2023 until 5pm 3 April 2023.

It focuses on high priority groups, including:

  • Culturally and linguistically diverse communities (in particular, people of refugee, refugee-like experiences, and asylum seeker backgrounds)
  • 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

Registration of Interest and consultation stage

You do not need to have submitted a Registration of Interest during this phase to make an application for funding under the Sexual Violence Project Fund.
