This can include primary prevention initiatives tailored for specific cohorts within the community, including Aboriginal communities, culturally and linguistically diverse communities, people with disability and the LGBTIQA+ community.

It builds on the success of the previous Primary Prevention Grants Program, in which $3 million was allocated to 17 WA organisations in 2022.

Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations and registered Aboriginal businesses are strongly encouraged to submit for the funding, to support prevention work for Aboriginal families and communities that is culturally safe and grounded in healing approaches.

Organisations can now apply for the DOCG202416089 – Family and Domestic Violence Primary Prevention Grants Program 2024/2026 via Tenders WA.

A second grants initiative, the Aboriginal Family Safety Grants Program for eligible Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations or registered Aboriginal businesses, is expected to open in May this year.

This initiative will support implementation of the Aboriginal Family Safety Strategy 2022-2032 by enabling Aboriginal designed and led actions and solutions that will promote family safety.
