International Women's Day Grants

International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated annually across the world on and around 8 March. The day provides an opportunity for communities to recognise the achievements of women, their contribution to our communities and the progress towards equality for women here in Australia and around the world.

The Office of Women's Policy provides grants each year to organisations and community groups to hold events that provide opportunities to participate in and celebrate the day.

Applications for the 2016 IWD Grants have now closed.

Grants for IWD 2017 will open in October 2016.

Small grants are available up to $3,000 (GST exclusive) per application.

For further information please see the Guidelines above or contact the Office of Women's Policy on 8999 2598 or email
