Applications for community language grants


CANBERRA, 14 MARCH. The Morrison Government has committed $10 million through the Community Languages Multicultural Grants Program to support not-for-profit community language schools.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the Grants Program would deliver a stronger Australia and invest in the future of Australia’s workforce to help them compete in an increasingly multilingual global market.

Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs David Coleman said there are 1000 community language schools across Australia who would be eligible for the grants. These schools specialise in 69 different languages and teach more than 100,000 school-aged children.

“A quarter of Australian children and teenagers speak a language other than English at home,” Mr Coleman said.

The Grants will be available for eligible community language schools on a per student basis to cover costs such as teaching materials, staff wages and new equipment.

Grants will also be available for eligible community language schools to develop teaching materials or run training activities. These grants will have a positive flow on effect to other community language schools that teach and use the same language, with schools encouraged to partner together to develop proposals and share materials.

Community Languages Multicultural Grant applications will open shortly.
