I encourage community groups, non-government organisations and local governments to submit funding applications for events across Queensland that engage our diverse cultural communities, and people from the wider community, in activities that promote positive community relations, community cohesion and a greater understanding of cultural diversity.
Funding to support initiatives to address identified needs and issues will be announced at a later time.
The 2013–14 Funding Information Paper has further details about funding priorities, categories and criteria, as well as how to develop and submit funding proposals. The 2013–14 Funding Information Paper and Application Form are available from the department’s website at www.datsima.qld.gov.au/multicultural.
The Multicultural Affairs Queensland will conduct information sessions in June 2013 concerning the Valuing Diversity Grants Program. Further details will soon be available on the above website.
If you would like further information regarding the program or the submission of funding applications, please contact Multicultural Affairs Queensland on (07) 3224 5006 or email MAQ@datsima.qld.gov.au.
The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 10 July 2013.
