Community Grants Program

The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) offers funding through its Community Grants Program (CGP) with a total annual budget of $500,000.

The program provides an opportunity for culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities, and the organisations that support them, to access funding for events, projects and programs designed by the community to support social cohesion and community development.

The grant categories provide a range of funding up to $50,000 for social, economic, cultural and civic activities that promote the benefits of Western Australia’s cultural diversity.

Refer to the Grants FAQ for general information about the CGP. Each grant type has its own guidelines and application form. Please read these carefully before applying.
