COVID-19 Community Fund now open

The $2 million COVID-19 Community Fund is for community organisations that support women and girls in Aotearoa New Zealand and are facing significantly increased demand for their services and/or decreased resources as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2020 COVID-19 lockdown had a disproportionate effect on women and girls in Aotearoa, including job losses, increased caring work and increased family violence.

Community organisations play a vital role in supporting women and girls at the grassroots in our community. COVID-19 can affect the services these organisations provide to local communities, so in order to support organisations to continue to support acute and immediate needs, the Minister for Women, Hon Jan Tinetti, announced a new COVID-19 Community Fund for 2021.
