Nova Scotians with creative ideas on how to prevent sexual violence can apply for Prevention and Innovation grants that provide up to $5,000 for smaller projects and $10,000 for larger ones.
LOVE: Leave Out Violence Nova Scotia used the grant they received in 2016-17 to build a teepee. It provided them with a space to gather for programs, one-on-one meetings, and during sweat lodge ceremonies.
The grants support community groups and organizations, including youth and marginalized communities such as African Nova Scotians, First Nations, and the LGBTQI+ community, to reach out to their peers and help put creative prevention initiatives into practice.
Grant applications will be accepted until Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. Applications are available at novascotia.ca/stopsexualviolence .
There are no upcoming events at this time.
