Funding Round for Multicultural projects now open

Do you have an idea for a program to support migrants and refugees? Why not apply for a grant to support multicultural projects to be delivered in 2019-2020?

The 2018-19 Celebrating Multicultural Queensland (CMQ) program funding round is now open and funding for up to $40,000 per project is available.

CMQ is for multicultural projects to be delivered in 2019-2020 that create pathways to participation for migrants and refugees in the cultural, economic and social life of Queensland, for example:

  • to support migrants and refugees with pathways to employment
  • to increase understanding and build connections with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • to support community organisations, Councils and local industries to build their capacity to be responsive and inclusive of migrants and refugees
  • to increase participation of migrants and refugees in community associations, service clubs and sporting groups.

The closing date for applications is Friday, 14 December 2018.

Visit the website to access the online application form and to view previous successful applications.
