Important update: As you are aware, the Australian Government has announced a number of safety measures to restrict public gatherings and events to protect the Australian community from the spread of COVID-19.

In view of the uncertainties around when Government will lift COVID-19 gatherings and social distancing restrictions, and in order to continue safeguarding our community as our top priority, 2020-21 Advance Together Grants have been put on hold until further notice.

Multicultural Affairs will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as more information becomes available.

The Advance Together Grants provide one-off funding to eligible multicultural organisations to develop projects that improve their governance and strengthen their capacity building skills.
