Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead is inviting local organisations with projects that empower NSW women and improve their wellbeing, to apply for a share of $400,000 from the NSW Government.
Mr Bromhead said, “This funding from the latest round of ‘Investing in Women Grant’, gives organisations in the Myall Lakes Electorate the opportunity to do their bit in promoting gender equality”.
“As a community it is important we lead the way in advancing the status of women. The investing in Women funding programs work to reduce gender inequality so that women have real opportunity and choice”, Mr Bromhead said.
The NSW Government is calling for applications for innovative projects that either;
- Improve women’s financial wellbeing or employment opportunities
- Promote and support a holistic approach to women’s health, or
- Support women’s engagement in the community or other social networks.
Minister for Women Bronwyn Taylor said, “The Investing in Women funding program empowers women across the State to participate and achieve in a range of areas. We are looking to fund a range of innovative projects, which can be anything from creating employment opportunities in male-dominated industries, improving access to women’s health information, to engaging more women in sports and recreation”.
Since 2013 the NSW Government has provided over $1.4 million under the Investing in Women funding program, to enhance women’s economic opportunities and leadership in NSW.
