$50,000 funding grants to tackle family violence during COVID-19
The funding grants will help increase the capacity of organisations that provide direct services to survivors or perpetrators, and assist with information and education, virtual training and other online services.
The COVID-19 Addressing Family Violence grants– part of our $7.46 million COVID-19 Community and Economic Support Package announced in early-April – are another step towards helping residents through the pandemic and thriving on the other side.
To provide service providers and other organisations with more time to respond, they have just extended the application deadline for these grants to 11.59pm on Sunday 3 May 2020.
They are also expanding Yarra’s own family violence outreach services and ensuring delivered meals program keeps more than 120 of clients in the City.
These grants follow the Creative Business and Creative Community grants announced in early-April.
Additional grants are expected to be announced in the coming weeks as they continue to roll out our $7.64 million support package.
