Applications for the second round of funding are now open

Applications for funding through the Priority Response to Multicultural Communities during Coronavirus (COVID-19) Phase 2 initiative are now open.

Applications funded through Phase 1 of the Priority Response to Multicultural Communities during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) grants program are eligible to apply for Phase 2 funding.

The program will ensure organisations can respond to the current health crisis and its impacts for multicultural and faith communities, with a focus on providing support to those communities and areas most in need, and in particular to respond to the distinct and disproportionate challenges experienced by CALD women and young people and new and emerging communities. It will also promote capacity building of local community network and organisations.

How to apply

All applications must be submitted by 4pm (Melbourne time) Friday 28 May 2021 or until funds are exhausted, whichever occurs first.

Applications for funding through the Priority Response to Multicultural Communities during Coronavirus (COVID-19) Phase 2 will be assessed on a fortnightly basis, with funding approved for allocation by the Minister each fortnight. Organisations are encouraged to apply for funding as soon as possible. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
