Grants to support multicultural communities

We offer a range of grants to support Victoria's multicultural and multifaith communities.

Our multicultural grants

Our grants programs support communities to:

  • celebrate and share their culture and traditions
  • build social and cultural connections, community partnerships and leadership
  • improve multicultural community infrastructure
  • better engage and support newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers
  • identify and respond to racial and religious intolerance

Grant programs are run throughout the year, with different application periods.
