The Australian Government is inviting an application via a targeted non-competitive process to deliver services under the Family and Communities Program/ Strong and Resilient Communities/ Community Resilience Grants nationally from 2019-20 to 2020-21. Funding will be offered to one organisation as a result of this process.

This Community Resilience grant aims to increase the social and economic participation of young Muslim males and females in Australian society, helping to address issues in the local community, such as racial, religious and cultural intolerance, through sport.

The activities that will be funded under this grant include:

  • an engagement and development program that increases the participation of young Muslim males and females in organised sport
  • a leadership program to empower young Muslim males and females
  • a youth employment program that provides a pathway to employment through mentoring, training and work experience for at risk youth
  • a cultural awareness and education program to engage communities and foster improved cultural and educational awareness between particular groups to build a better understanding of Australia’s cultural diversity.
