Women's Health Loddon Mallee will share in $3 million of state government funding to provide services to women and children experiencing family violence.
The organisation is one 12 women's health services to share in the funding that will last them two years.
Women's Health Loddon Mallee chief executive Tricia Currie said the funding would help continue the work set out by the organisation.
"It's really important we continue to do the work that addresses the drivers of violence against women," she said.
"(It will help) the capacity of building work able to support organisations and communities across the Loddon Mallee region (and) to understand how gender equity prevents violence and builds the skills to call out behaviours that condone violence or rigid stereotypes."
Part of the funding will also go to helping women's mental health during the coronavirus pandemic.
Ms Currie said instances of family violence increased in times of disaster.
"Evidence of that has built up over some time," she said. "In response to natural disasters like bushfires, (there is an) increase of family violence and, within that, some women's experience it for the first time," she said.
"The stay at home strategy is essential for flattening the curve but we do know it creates a pressure cooker. There are perpetrators of violence that aren't looking for help but would be taking advantage of a closed home and isolation."
Prevention of family violence minister Gabrielle Williams said during the coronavirus pandemic, the prevention of family violence remained a critical priority for the state government.
"It is more important than ever that the health services that support women and families continue have the resources they need to keep Victorians safe," Ms Williams said.
"This additional funding is about keeping the sector running so they can deliver that all important help."
Women's Health Loddon Mallee, like many others, has changed the way they deliver services during COVID-19 restrictions.
"There has been a reduction in the face-to-face services available," Ms Currie said. "For us, we have specifically gone to telehealth (services).
"(Family violence) response services are being creative and using initiatives to ensure there are lots of ways people can access information they need."
