Closing date extended until 15 August 2021

The Expand Together Grants provide one-off funding to eligible multicultural organisations to upgrade, extend or build community facilities or purchase equipment for use by South Australia’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

The Expand Together Grants aim to ensure there are necessary facilities and equipment for community members to come together, access the services and programs they need, and connect with the wider network of the local community.

There are two categories of grants under the Expand Together Grants available to multicultural organisations for projects to be delivered over 12 months, commencing in October 2021:

  1. Infrastructure Grants of up to $100,000
  2. Equipment Grants of up to $20,000.

There are matched funding requirements for applicants requesting more than $20,000.

Multicultural Affairs will only accept one application per organisation for the Expand Together Grants. Organisations with regional offices can submit one application per regional office.

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

Applications for the second round of Expand Together Grants 2021–22 are now open and close on 15 August 2021 at 11 pm.

Successful recipients of the first round of Expand Together Grants 2021–22 (closed 28 February 2021) are not eligible to apply for this second round of funding.
