Ethnic Communities Development Fund

The Ethnic Communities Development Fund has $4.2 million a year available for projects that support ethnic communities to grow their skills, celebrate their culture and take part in society.

As with previous years, the demand for the fund is very high and this year has been the most applications we have ever received. There is a minimal amount of funding remaining until 30 June 2023. We are currently over subscribed with funding applications.

Applications will be considered for the fund during April to June but we will pause approvals until 1 July 2023. We will advise applicants as per normal at that time.
