Community Partnerships for Primary Prevention Grants

The Community Partnerships for Primary Prevention Grants Program is designed to support local community partnerships to coordinate and drive family violence prevention activities.

The grants program also supports ongoing investment and effort in Victoria to end family violence and other forms of violence against women, particularly following the release of Free from violence: Victoria’s strategy to end family violence and all forms of violence against women.
