Multicultural projects get $300,000
MULTICULTURAL projects in NSW could enjoy a share in $300,000 grant funding from the State Government.
The Multicultural NSW Celebrating Diversity Projects Grants program supports projects that demonstrate collaborative relationships and partnerships between the private sector and community and nongovernment organisations.
“There are so many dedicated organisations in our local community that devote endless time, passion and energy into supporting our multicultural community,” Member for Murray Austin Evans said.
“These grants will support programs, activities and networks in our local community to develop and thrive, especially where service gaps or unmet community needs exist.”
Minister for Multiculturalism Ray Williams said grants of up to $40,000 were available for meaningful 12-month projects.
“These grants are available to all eligible organisations and will have positive long-term effects in our community,” Mr Williams said.
“I especially encourage regional and new and emerging communities to apply for this program.”
Applications are now open and will close at 5pm on Friday, December 14.
