Community Grants Program

Dragon dancers in Northbridge to celebrate Chinese New Year

The Office of Multicultural Interests has recently made changes to its Community Grants Program (CGP) to support the objectives of its Strategic Plan 2014–2018. Grants are now available in four categories with the following 2014 closing dates for applications:

  • Events and Activities (up to $5000)—closing dates Friday 28 February and Friday 26 September 2014 only
  • Small Projects ($5000–$20,000)—closing dates Friday 28 February and Friday 26 September 2014 only
  • Major Community Celebrations Sponsorships (up to $20,000)—closing date Friday 28 February 2014 only

The CGP funds projects and activities that strengthen the capacity of culturally diverse communities and also supports the development of culturally inclusive policies, programs and services.

CGP grants endeavour to support full participation of Western Australia’s culturally diverse communities in social, economic, cultural and civic activities while also developing intercultural understanding and promoting the many benefits of WA’s cultural diversity.
