Mini-grants for Family Violence Prevention Week 

The Premier’s Action Committee on Family Violence Prevention (PAC) encourages Island municipalities and community organizations to play an active role in 2023 Family Violence Prevention Week, 15-21 May 2023. 

Family Violence Prevention Week highlights PAC’s vision of a society where everyone is safe, respected and valued; where any form of violence is unacceptable; and where people have opportunities to reach their full potential and contribute to the overall well-being of families and communities. This year’s theme is Healing Communities.

Encouraging Islanders to reflect upon, learn about, and take action on family violence prevention is important.  To help with expenses that come with hosting a Family Violence Prevention Week event, PAC invites municipalities and community organizations to apply for a $200 mini-grant.

Municipalities and community organizations are eligible to apply for a grant in support of an event during Family Violence Prevention Week that is consistent with the PAC vision (see B.2 on the application form below). 

Your imagination can be your guide about what would be the best fit for your municipality or community organization. The funding might help with printing, materials, promotion, or other expenses. Up to 20 grants will be awarded. 

We’ve kept the attached application form simple. This year, successful applications will be funded on a rolling basis (first come/first served) until 20 grants have been awarded. Applications close at 5:00pm on 24 April, 2023. Early submissions are encouraged.
