Safe Places

Shelter WA is pleased to advise that the Australian Government’s $60 million Safe Places Emergency Accommodation capital grant round is now open and will close at 11.00pm (AEDT) on 14 February 2020.

Safe Places provides new or expanded emergency and crisis accommodation for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence. It could also help organisations construct, repurpose, renovate or purchase new buildings to create additional safe places.

Assistant Minister for Community Housing, Homelessness and Community Services Luke Howarth said the funding would deliver up to 450 additional safe places for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence.

Under the Safe Places Program all grant recipients will be responsible for ensuring they are compliant with relevant Commonwealth and state laws. Project proponents should obtain their own advice as to the regulatory obligations they will need to comply with to meet their specific circumstances.

To be eligible you must be one of the following entity types:

  • Commonwealth Company
  • Company
  • Corporate State or Territory Entity
  • Incorporated Association
  • Indigenous Corporation
  • Local Government
  • Statutory Entity
  • Trustee on behalf of a Trust.

Organisations interested in applying for a Safe Places grant should visit Community Grants Hub or GrantConnect for grant information.

If you have a question about Safe Places or the grants process that is not included on the Questions and Answers document please email no later than 5.00pm AEDT on 7 February 2020.

The best way to ensure your organisation is notified of announcements or changes to the Safe Places program is to register with GrantConnect.
