The Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs, the Hon David Coleman MP has announced the opening of the Fostering Integration Grants.
The Fostering Integration Grants will help organisation's to deliver programs and activities that give migrants the best chance of succeeding - assisting them to integrate into life in Australia, while promoting Australian values
The Department of Home Affairs is seeking applications from not-for-profit organisations that:
- encourage the social and economic participation of migrants by developing skills and cultural competencies to integrate into Australian social, economic and civil life, and build community resilience
- promote and encourage the uptake of Australian values and liberal democracy and amplify the value of Australian citizenship
- address issues within Australian communities that show potential for, or early signs of, low social integration
- promote a greater understanding and tolerance of racial, religious and cultural diversity.
The grants will be for programs and activities that work with newly arrived migrants, first and second generation migrants and communities showing early signs of, or potential for integration challenges and/or cultural intolerance. Initiatives that focus on supporting women, young people and integration in regional Australia will be prioritised.
Grants of between $10,000 and $50,000 are available across Australia.
Please note that this grant opportunity opened on 18 September 2018 and will close on 9 November 2018.
