The Scanlon Foundation's annual community grants round for 2019 will fund projects that support the transition of migrants into employment or support practical English literacy.
This year's community grants will provide funding of up to a maximum of $25,000. The community grants will focus on six local government areas in Queensland which includes: Brisbane, Inala, Ipswich, Logan, Rockhampton and Townsville.
Projects should consider the experience of migramts and of receiving communities and aim to nurture positive outcomes. All submissions are also expected to empower new arrival communities and develop cross cultural connections.
Expressions of interest can be made by eligible organisations for grants of up to $25,000 through Smartygrants.
Applications are now open and will close at 12 midnight on 12 September 2019.
