Still one month left to apply for Multicultural Participation Grants Program

Applications are now open for the Multicultural Participation Grant Program, provided by the ACT Government.

The grants will provide funding to highlight and promote community participation, cultural diversity and inclusion at the National Multicultural Festival.

A total of $85,000 is available for this round. Eligible organisations can apply from today for funding to:

  • showcase the vibrancy and heritage of multiculturalism through celebrations and events at the 2019┬áNational Multicultural Festival;
  • foster cross-cultural awareness, understanding, respect, community groups and intercultural relationships; and
  • enable ACT multicultural communities to celebrate, preserve and share traditions and heritage through cultural performances (dance and music) and in other meaningful ways.

A total of $85,000 (GST exclusive) is available in the 2018-19 funding round and the maximum grant that can be applied for is $8,000 (GST exclusive).

It is the intention to ensure as many multicultural organisations as possible benefit from the funds available. In the case of recommended applications exceeding the available funding, the assessment panel will review and adjust the level of funding offered to successful applicants where necessary.

Applicants are encouraged not to rely solely on this grant funding for the viability of their activity, event or project. Applicants are encouraged to secure other funding sources including partnering with other organisations to deliver the activity, event or project.

Closes: 17 September 2018
