The Expand Together Grants provide one-off funding annually 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.

Expand Together Grants will be awarded through one funding round in 2021-22. There are two categories of grants under the Expand Together Grants. Infrastructure Grants of up to $100,000 and Equipment Grants of up to $20,000 are available to multicultural organisations for projects to be delivered over 12 months, commencing in July 2021. There are matched funding requirements for applicants requesting more than $20,000.

Multicultural Affairs will 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 28 February 2021 at 11pm.
