The Turnbull Government will contribute up to $750,000 over the next three years to the Stop the Coward's Punch Campaign.
The federal support was announced at a fundraising dinner in Melbourne attended by the Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton.
The campaign, initiated by professional boxer Danny Green six years ago, has lifted awareness of 'coward punch' attacks across the nation.
Danny Green now wants to take the message directly to Australia's youth – usually the perpetrators and victims of these assaults – via the nation's high schools.
The Stop the Coward's Punch Campaign plans to develop materials that give young people strategies to avoid violent situations and de-escalation techniques if caught in such a situation.
Some estimates are that around 100 young Australians have been killed in 'coward punch' attacks in recent years.
"Danny Green has almost singlehandedly changed the vernacular surrounding these violent incidents from 'king hits' to the negative connotation of 'coward's punch' over the last six years," Mr Dutton said.
"His television commercials have been extremely powerful in raising awareness that these attacks harm countless lives – apart from the victim and perpetrator – and that we should not tolerate such behaviour.
"Danny has given a great amount of his time to building awareness of the campaign around the country, speaking at community events and visiting schools to counsel students."
Mr Dutton said the Government funding would support the campaign's efforts to educate young people of the harmed caused by a 'coward punch.'
