Funding to build stronger communities

The Gillard Labor Government will provide grants of up to $50,000 for communities to develop projects that build stronger community relations.

Community organisations can apply for funding of up to $50,000 under the Diversity and Social Cohesion Program (DSCP) to develop projects that promote participation, strengthen local connections and enhance their community’s capacity-building skills

Community organisations often have great ideas to encourage inclusion and grassroots participation, but sometimes need additional resources to turn their plans into reality.

A key objective of the Gillard Government’s DSCP grant program is to ensure that there are opportunities for all people to participate in Australia’s social and cultural life.

“A wide variety of projects can be funded under the grant program, including social activities, theatre or leadership programs, as long as they provide an opportunity for participation and interaction by different members of the community,” Senator Lundy said.

“I encourage eligible community organisations across Australia to apply for the funding so they can promote participation and build stronger community relations,” Senator Lundy said.

Funding will be open to groups such as school communities, non-profit organisations, service clubs, faith groups, sporting bodies, community organisations, youth organisations and local government authorities. Universities and colleges of education are also eligible to apply.

Applications should be lodged with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) by 5.00pm EST on Friday, 1 March 2013 to be considered for the first round of offers.
