The Multicultural NSW Celebrating Diversity Grants Program aims to foster community harmony and celebrate cultural diversity as a precious part of our identity and way of life.
There are two categories of grants under the Celebrating Diversity Grants Program:
Celebrating Diversity: Events – aim to support festivals and events that bring communities together, showcase the benefits of cultural diversity and promote social cohesion and community harmony. Celebrating Diversity: Events aim to attract everyone to share in the celebration of cultural diversity.
Grants of up to $10,000 are available for Celebrating Diversity: Events.
Celebrating Diversity: Projects – aim to support new projects and initiatives that bring communities together and make a lasting positive impact on social cohesion. Celebrating Diversity: Projects aim to build community capacity at the grassroots, foster cross-cultural engagement and support the participation of migrants and new arrivals in society.
Grants of up to $40,000 are available for 12-month projects than can make a lasting positive impact on social cohesion at the grassroots level.
