Closing Date & Time

The Australian Government is inviting organisations via an open process to apply to deliver services under the Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship Program – Fostering Integration Grants from 2018-19 to 2019-2020.

Australia is a successful multicultural nation. We have flourished in part thanks to our cultural diversity, underpinned by our common values and commitment to freedom, security and prosperity. The Department of Home Affairs continues to nurture our socially cohesive society by supporting the integration of migrants.

The Fostering Integration Grants Program supports migrants to integrate into Australia by:

  • encouraging the social and economic participation of migrants by developing skills and cultural competencies to integrate into Australian social, economic and civil life, and build community resilience
  • promoting and encouraging the uptake of Australian values and liberal democracy and amplifying the value of Australian citizenship
  • addressing issues within Australian communities that show potential for, or early signs of, low social integration
  • promoting a greater understanding and tolerance of racial, religious and cultural diversity.
