Safe Places Emergency Accommodation Program – Inclusion Round

The Safe Places Emergency Accommodation Program (Safe Places) provides capital grants to fund the building, renovation or purchase of new emergency accommodation for women and children experiencing violence.

As part of the National Plan to End Violence against Women and Children 2022-2032, the Government committed $100 million over 5 years (2022-23 to 2026-27) to continue the Safe Places program through the Safe Places Inclusion Round (Inclusion Round). Of this, up to $90.9 million is available for grants over 4 years (2023-24 to 2026-27).

The Inclusion Round will focus on improving access to appropriate emergency accommodation for First Nations women and children, women and children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and women and children with disability. This includes those who experience the intersection of racism, ableism and sexism.

The Inclusion Round is being delivered via a competitive grant round, which will open for applications on GrantConnect.

Virtual information sessions will be held shortly after the opening of the Inclusion Round to assist organisations to apply for a grant.
