Applications for the Celebrating Multicultural Queensland program funding round will close on 6 December 2019.
This funding round is for multicultural projects that create pathways to participation for people from culturally diverse backgrounds, including people who arrived in Australia as migrants or refugees, and people seeking asylum, in the cultural, economic and social life of Queensland.
Projects could, for example, relate to:
- supporting people from culturally diverse backgrounds with pathways to employment
- improving understanding of and connections with the history and cultures of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples
- supporting community organisations, councils and local industries to build their capacity to be responsive and inclusive of people from culturally diverse backgrounds
- increasing participation of people from culturally diverse backgrounds in community associations, service clubs and sporting groups.
One-off funding of up to $40,000 is available for projects to be delivered in 2020–21.
Funding applications for projects to be delivered in regional areas are also encouraged.
