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 expand their capacity by upgrading community facilities or purchasing equipment to meet the needs of 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.

Expand Together Grants of up to $100,000 are available to multicultural organisations for projects to be delivered over the next 12 months.

There are matched funding requirements for applicants requesting more than $50,000.

There are 2 rounds of Expand Together. Round 1 projects start in July 2023. Round 2 projects start in February 2024.

Applications for round 1 have closed.

Applications for round 2 open on 1 June 2023 and close on 30 August 2023 at 11pm.
