Over four years from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2026, the NSW Government has committed to establish and commence the operation of new and refurbished core and cluster refuges for women and children escaping domestic and family violence (DFV).
The Core and Cluster facilities will be procured over three tranches.
This Expression of Interest (EOI) is specifically for Aboriginal-led proposals and is open to registered Aboriginal organisations such as Aboriginal Community Housing Providers (ACHP) and Local Aboriginal Land Councils (LALC) or Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCO).
This EOI is seeking to identify pipeline projects suitable for implementation or further development from July 2023, and is open to proposals from across NSW.
More information about the Core and Cluster Program is available on the Department of Communities and Justice website:https://www.facs.nsw.gov.au/domestic-violence/new-investment-housing-and-related-supports-for-women-and-children-escaping-domestic-and-family-violence
