The Expand Together Grants are administered by Multicultural Affairs within the Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC).
The grants provide one-off funding to eligible multicultural organisations to upgrade, extend or build community facilities, to upgrade security, to purchase a community bus or van, or to 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 local community network.
The priority for this round is investment in security upgrades, community infrastructure and community transport.
There are three categories of grants in this round of Expand Together Grants available to multicultural organisations for projects to be delivered over 12 months, commencing in December 2022.
- Infrastructure Grants of up to $100 000 (One hundred thousand dollars only),
- Security Upgrades and Community Transport of up to $50 000 (Fifty thousand dollars only), and
- Equipment Grants of up to $20 000 (Twenty thousand dollars only).
There are matched funding requirements for applicants requesting more than $20 000.
Multicultural Affairs will only accept one application for the Expand Together Grants per organisation. 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 are now open and close on 31 August 2022 at 11pm.
