The Australian Government is inviting entities to apply for grant funding under the Women’s Leadership and Development Program (WLDP) Project Grants.

The Australian Government funds the WLDP to deliver a range of projects specifically for Australian women. Additional funding over 2020-21 to 2023-24 was announced in the 2020-21 Budget as part of the 2020 Women’s Economic Security Statement to expand the WLDP to introduce a new women’s job creation priority area and boost existing priority areas.

The objective of the WLDP is to improve outcomes for Australian women in six key focus areas: women’s job creation; women’s economic security; women’s workforce participation; women’s leadership; women’s safety; and international engagement.

This grant opportunity supports projects that achieve tangible improvements in outcomes linked to the achievement of all, one, or a combination of the key priority areas of the WLDP (note: international engagement will not form part of this grant opportunity).

Priority will be given to applicants who can demonstrate how their project complements existing initiatives under the Government’s JobMaker Plan, in particular the JobTrainer Fund, to work in partnership with the Commonwealth.

Projects that are scalable, transferable across industries and occupations, and those that focus on supporting women from different backgrounds are strongly encouraged.

Projects funded under the 2018-19 WLDP grant opportunity are encouraged to apply for a continuation or expansion of their project.
