Applications for the 2019–20 Fostering Integration Grant Program will close next week on Tuesday 5 November.

The Morrison Government is providing $2.3 million for community organisations to support the integration of migrants into Australian social, economic and civil life.

Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrants Services and Multicultural Affairs David Coleman said Fostering Integrant Grant Program will fund activities that celebrate and recognise Australia’s multicultural communities, increase cultural awareness and help build more socially cohesive communities.

“The grants will help not-for-profit organisations deliver programs and activities that give migrants the best chance of succeeding in Australia,”  Coleman said.

“We want all migrants to succeed and make the most of the opportunities Australia has to offer, just as previous generations have done. We also want to maintain and build on our success as a cohesive society.”

The program has been refined to optimise opportunities for smaller, grassroots organisations. There is also a focus on key cultural events, which raise awareness of Australia’s multicultural diversity and promote a sense of belonging by bringing people together.

Activities funded may include cultural events or festivals, programs that help migrants undertake valuable work experience in order to succeed in the workforce, or opportunities to practice English in their local community.

Not-for-profit organisations can apply for grants of up to $60,000 for activities lasting up to 12 months.
