The Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs is inviting applications for Multicultural Projects.
- There are two categories for project funding under each funding round:
Category 1 – Economic and Social Participation (E&SP) Projects
- Pathways to economic and social participation – projects based on identified need that aim to support economic and social participation – one-off funding up to $40,000.
Category 2 – Youth and Community Connection (Y&CC) Projects
- For innovative projects that can assist with breaking down the barriers facing young people from CALD backgrounds that can result in feelings of disengagement or disconnection with community. These projects will enable young people to feel heard, valued, supported and empowered, resulting in their increased access to, and inclusion within the community – one-off funding up to $120,000.
Types of Project
Examples of the types of projects the program supports are:
- Community based activities (such as workshops, training, skills development, knowledge and awareness raising, fostering social connections) to address an identified issue, which are conducted over a period of time with key deliverables/milestones and specified anticipated outcomes.
- Targeted activities that provide benefits for groups of individuals, such as increased community participation, economic independence, inclusion or access to opportunities within the local community.
