Women Empowerment Fund invites 2023-24 second round applications
     ​The Women Empowerment Fund is open for the second round of applications this year starting from today (October 19) until November 20. The Fund subsidises community projects that support women in juggling their jobs and family life, bringing women's awareness to their own physical and mental health, and unleashing their potential.
     Set up in June 2023, the Fund aims to empower women, regardless of their age, occupation and background, to unleash their full potential in their respective roles, ultimately achieving the goal of promoting women's development in Hong Kong.
     The Fund is divided into general and thematic projects. The funding cap of each one-year and two-year general project is $400,000 and $800,000 respectively. For thematic projects this year, namely the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Exchange Programmes, each project shall be completed within one year and the funding cap is $120,000.
     The Fund accepts two rounds of applications each year. The Guide to Application and the application form have been uploaded to the Fund's website (www.wef.gov.hk). Interested women's organisations and non-governmental organisations may submit an electronic or paper application.
