    Through the program, community groups and schools can apply for funding for cultural celebrations, festivals and events held between 1 July 2018 and 30 June 2019. The program aims to strengthen cultural diversity and understanding, and encourage participation by all members of the community.

    Victorians come from more than 200 different countries, speak more than 260 languages and dialects and follow 135 religious faiths.

    Announcing the program at the end of March, Minister for Multicultural Affairs Robin Scott said, “We are building a Victoria where everyone belongs, feels accepted and can freely participate and contribute.” Minister Scott encourages community organisations to apply for a grant and “bring Victoria’s vibrant multiculturalism to life”.

    This year’s program includes a new $50,000 schools stream, to make it easier for schools to apply for funding closer to the time of their Cultural Diversity Week 2019 celebrations.

    The grant program also aims to build the capacity and experience of smaller or emerging community groups to deliver cultural events that benefit their communities in partnership with other organisations.
