Fostering Integration Grants

Applications are open for the Australian Government’s Fostering Integration Grants under its $5 million Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Program.

Fostering Integration Grant applications for a minimum of $10,000 up to a maximum of $50,000 (GST exclusive) for up to 12 months will be considered. Successful organisations may receive less funding than requested.

Grants will fund services, activities and events that seek to work with:

  • newly arrived migrants
  • first and second generation migrants
  • communities showing early signs of or potential for integration challenges and/or racial, religious or cultural intolerance.

The aim of the Program is to support migrants to integrate into Australia by: encouraging the social and economic participation of migrants by developing skills and cultural competencies to integrate into Australian social, economic and civil life, and build community resilience; promoting and encouraging the uptake of Australian values and liberal democracy and amplifying the value of Australian citizenship; addressing issues within Australian communities that show potential for, or early signs of, low social integration
promoting a greater understanding and tolerance of racial, religious and cultural diversity.

To be eligible to apply for a grant, you must be a not-for-profit organisation that is a legally registered entity in Australia

Applications close at 2pm AEST on 9th November 2018.
