As part of Tasmania’s Population Growth Strategy the Tasmanian Government created the Multicultural Grants Program aimed at assisting migrants to settle and feel welcome in Tasmania. The Tasmanian Government aims to:
- build the capacity of ethnic community organisations to deliver positive outcomes for community members, including civic and community participation;
- assist migrants to feel welcome and part of the community;
- support the establishment and growth of migrant-led social enterprises; and
support projects that foster cross-cultural understanding and engagement.
The Tasmanian Government has allocated $100,000 for the 2017 Multicultural Grants Program. The Grants Program is coordinated by Communities, Sport and Recreation (CSR) in the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPAC).
The Multicultural Grants Program closes at 5 pm on 3 February 2017.
More information, grant guidelines and the application form may be found on the Department of Premier and Cabinet website.
