Funding forums

Funding forums help culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) community groups find funding for projects and advise them on how to apply.

CaLD communities often experience challenges in seeking government funding. These challenges can include finding the right funding source, understanding the application process and complying with financial accountability requirements.

To help communities overcome these difficulties, OMI established an across-government Funding Network for CaLD Communities to improve communication between the many different government departments that offer funding.

As a result, OMI has presented two metropolitan and one regional funding forum to inform CaLD communities about funding opportunities.
