Queensland Government – Safe and Diverse Communities Grants

Status: Ongoing

Region: Queensland wide

Amount: $10,000 to $25,000


The Safe and Diverse Communities grants program (the grants program) supports small, targeted, community-led projects to increase the capability of multicultural communities to recognise, respond and prevent sexual, domestic and family violence across Queensland.

The grants program aims to create meaningful partnerships and engagement with people from diverse backgrounds to take proactive steps in improving women’s safety, and through awareness and prevention initiatives to address sexual, domestic and family violence.

This grants program aims to target multicultural communities. This includes people from migrant or refugee backgrounds, as well as people who are born in Queensland and who self-identify as ‘being from multicultural backgrounds’. This applies to groups and individuals who differ according to religion, language and ethnicity and whose ancestry is other than Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, Anglo Saxon or Anglo Celtic.
