If your community group has an idea for a project that helps migrants and refugees become more closely involved in community life, funding is now available to make that idea a reality.
Chris Whiting MP wants local groups to apply for a grant of up to $40,000 from the Celebrating Multicultural Queensland program for projects that encourage people from migrant and refugee backgrounds to participate fully in the Moreton Bay community.
“The funding is a great opportunity for community groups, not for profit organisations, sporting clubs, youth groups, P&C associations, and multicultural organisations in the Moreton Bay region,” Chris Whiting said.
“Previous successful projects across Queensland include those that help bridge the gap to employment, improving language skills, or record the history of migrant communities.
“These grants are a great opportunity for groups working in our fast-growing region to help build a true sense of belonging.
“The Palaszczuk Government made a commitment made at the last election to double funding for the multicultural grants program.
“We want Queenslanders to embrace our multicultural identity and to create activities that build a true sense of belonging,” said Chris Whiting.
Applications are now open and can be submitted online until 14 December.
