The Riverine Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
