2023 Women’s Week Grants
Applications are now open for the 2023 NSW Women’s Week Grants Program!
This is such a wonderful initiative and I encourage Councils and not-for-profit organisations to apply for a share of $100,000 to hold events that celebrate and connect women and girls in NSW.
NSW Women’s Week is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and accomplishments of women and girls across this great state.
It’s also a time for us to shine a light on what we can do to bring women together to share our strengths, support each other and work towards gender equality.
Applications close Sunday, 4 December 2022.
