Investing in Queensland Women Grants

Are you interested in advancing the lives of women and girls and achieving gender equality?

Are you a community group or organisation that has an idea for an event, resource or project that would benefit women and girls across Queensland?

The Investing in Queensland Women grant program (the grant program) supports community groups and organisations across Queensland’s urban, rural and remote regions with resources to lead projects and events designed to create positive change for women and girls.

To assist in getting your idea up and running, the grant program provides one-off grants of up to $15,000 for projects and events that align with the Queensland Government’s strategic priorities and address the unique issues faced by women and girls.

Grant rounds are released twice a year, with a total allocation of $270,000 in funds (excluding GST) per round.
