The Celebrate Together Grants provide one-off funding to eligible multicultural organisations to host festivals and events that celebrate cultural diversity.

The Celebrate Together Grants 2022-23 will be awarded through two funding rounds.

There are two categories under the Celebrate Together Grants:

  • Large Grants from $5,001 to $30,000 are available to eligible multicultural organisations for festivals and events to be delivered within 12-months, commencing July 2022. There are matched funding requirements for applicants requesting Large Grants.
  • Small Grants of up to $5,000. The first round will be for events held between 1 July 2022 and 31 December 2022. The second round will be for events held between 1 January 2023 and 30 June 2023.

Multicultural Affairs will accept one application for each round of the Celebrate Together Grants, per organisation per year.

Key multicultural service providers, who have a direct responsibility working with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, can apply up to two times per round as a lead agency in partnership with one or more multicultural community organisations.

Applications for Large Grants and Small Grants (Round 1) are closed.

Applications for Small Grants (Round 2) are closed.
