The Australian Government is inviting applications under the Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Program: Community Languages Multicultural Grants Stream Two in 2019-20.

The objective of the grant opportunity is to build the capacity of community language schools to deliver quality language education. The Community Language Multicultural Grants aims to:

  • Support the maintenance, development and acquisition of languages other than English.
  • Connect young Australians to the languages and cultures of their community.
  • Enhance cross-cultural awareness and respect for cultural diversity.

The Australian Government announced $10 million over two years for the Community Languages Multicultural Grants. Stream Two funding will provide up to $25,000 for a project grant to develop resources or training to benefit the community language sector more broadly.

Applications from organisations applying as a consortium will be prioritised for funding. Applicants are encouraged to seek endorsement for their proposed project from either the national peak body or a state and territory peak body relating to community languages.
