Grants and funding available

The Queensland government’s Celebrating Multicultural Queensland (CMQ) program funding round for multicultural projects is now open. Incorporated organisations operating as a not-for-profit/charitable entity, Local Government Authorities (LGAs) and P&C Associations are invited to apply for funding for multicultural projects that create pathways to participation for people from culturally diverse backgrounds, including migrants and refugees, in the cultural, economic and social life of Queensland. To view the funding guidelines and how to apply, visit the website. The round closes Friday, 6th December.

The first round of the Queensland government’s Thriving Cohesive Communities grants is now open under two streams: Youth Connect – Contribute – Lead; and Locals speaking to locals. The Youth Connect steam will provide grants for projects that establish connection with young people at risk of exclusion and isolation and assist young people to meaningfully participate in existing local programs, services, clubs and community activities. The Locals stream is for projects that bring local people together to strengthen understanding and acceptance of all forms of diversity. For more details and to apply, visit the website. The round closes Monday, 25th November.
