This grants program aims to:

  • support and empower Victorian women
  • celebrate and promote their contributions to their communities
  • improve gender equality across Victoria.

Our vision is that Victorians of all genders:

  • live in a safe and equal society
  • have access to equal power, resources and opportunities
  • are treated with dignity, respect and fairness.

We want to see progress in key facets of the lives of women and girls, with a focus on improving whole-of-community outcomes including:

  • Cultural change: Victoria is free from gender stereotypes, gender roles and prejudices.
  • Health and wellbeing: the health and wellbeing of Victorians are not limited by gender.
  • Safety and respect: all Victorians are safe and treated with respect.
  • Economic and material security: Victorians have equal access to economic and material security.

This program will fund activities across Victoria that contribute to the above goals.
