The Celebrating Multicultural Queensland grants program funds diverse multicultural events and needs based projects that celebrate and promote Queensland’s multicultural identity, increase community awareness of the benefits of multiculturalism, foster community cohesion, and support equitable access to opportunities by people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Funding will be allocated to events and projects to be held in the 2016 calendar year, with up to $20,000 available under the Signature Events category, up to $10,000 under the Cultural Events category, and up to $25,000 under the Multicultural Projects category.
I encourage community groups, local councils and non-government incorporated organisations that involve or support migrants and refugees from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to consider submitting funding proposals.
Please ensure you read the 2015-16 Funding Information Paper for information on the program. To view the Funding Information Paper and to access the online application forms, please visit our website.
The closing date for applications is Monday, 14 September 2015.
