FUNDING ON OFFER FOR MULTICULTURAL PROJECTS IN NORTHERN TABLELANDS

Tuesday, 6 November 2018

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is encouraging the region’s local councils and community organisations to apply for a share of $300,000 in funding from the NSW Government for multicultural projects across the State.

Mr Marshall said grants of up to $40,000 were being made available for projects that could deliver long-term outcomes in communities to promote tolerance and diversity.

“There are so many dedicated organisations in our local community that devote endless time, passion and energy into supporting our multicultural community through festivals, meetings and other important gatherings,” Mr Marshall said.

“These grants will support programs, activities and networks in our local community to develop and thrive, especially where service gaps or unmet community needs exist.

“I encourage all eligible local community organisations to consider applying for the Multicultural NSW Celebrating Diversity Projects Grants.

“These grants are available to all eligible organisations and will have positive long-term effects in our community.”

Multicultural NSW project-based grants have previously supported youth engagement and empowerment programs, refugee and asylum seeker projects and volunteering programs.

The Multicultural NSW Celebrating Diversity Projects grants program particularly supports projects that demonstrate collaborative relationships and partnerships between the private sector and community and non-government organisations.

Applications are now open and will close at 5pm on Friday, 14 December 2018.
