The Australian Government is seeking applications via an open competitive process for the Economic Pathways to Refugee Integration (EPRI) program Grants to Social Enterprises grant opportunity.
The new program seeks to increase the rate of employment for refugees and humanitarian entrants with lower skill levels and low English language proficiency.
The program will, in creating economic opportunity for refugees, support refugees to successfully integrate into life in Australia.
The grant opportunity will support economic participation focused social enterprises who can demonstrate the ability to achieve economic participation outcomes for refugees and humanitarian entrants.
The grant opportunity will prioritise applications from employment regions identified as having a high number of refugee and humanitarian entrant job seekers.
A total of $15 million is available for this grant opportunity. Eligible applicants can apply for grants of between $50,000 and $1 million per annum over 3 years.
