Brockville - Oct. 13, 2011 - Leeds-Grenville Member of Parliament Gord Brown is encouraging constituents to consider proposing local projects that address issues of violence and economic security.

“I hope that our riding will participate in this program launched last week by my Cabinet colleague, the Honourable Rona Ambrose, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and Minister for Status of Women,” says Brown.

“Our Government is committed to supporting grassroots projects that improve the lives of women and girls across Canada,” said Minister Ambrose. “We’re proud to work with community organizations across Canada to help end violence against women, improve their economic prosperity and promote women in leadership roles.”

“Women living in rural and remote communities, and in small urban centres, face specific challenges concerning economic security and violence,” says Brown. “Through this call for proposals, we are addressing these needs.”

Status of Women Canada accepts applications to the Women’s Program on an ongoing basis. From September 26 until November 4, 2011, the Women’s Program will also accept applications for this targeted call under the following two thematic areas:
• community planning to reduce violence against women and girls in rural communities and small urban centres in Canada; and
• community planning for women’s economic security in rural and remote communities in Canada.

The Government of Canada is committed to funding projects that strengthens Canadian families and communities. Through Status of Women Canada alone, the government's support for community-based projects has nearly doubled since 2006-2007, growing from $10.8 million to $19 million - its highest level ever.
