​​Fostering Integration Grants program

The Fostering Integration Grants program facilitates the participation, integration and social cohesion of both recently arrived migrants and multicultural communities in Australia by:

  • encouraging the social and economic participation of migrants by developing skills and cultural competencies to integrate into Australian social, economic and civil life, and build community resilience
  • promoting and encouraging the uptake of Australian values and liberal democracy and amplifying the value of Australian citizenship
  • promoting a greater understanding and acceptance of racial, religious and cultural diversity
  • addressing issues in Australian communities that show potential for, or early signs of, low social integration.​​​​
