$200,000 Govt funding to Hindu organisations


MELBOURNE, 15 DEC. The Andrews Labor Government will provide funding of $200,000 ($50,000 per year) to support organisations planning Hindu celebrations.

The Government is supporting multicultural and multifaith communities to reconnect and celebrate with funding for cultural festivals and events across the state. Minister for Multicultural Affairs Ros Spence today announced more than $1.1 million will be distributed among 285 community organisations for events between January and June 2022.

Funded events will support celebrations for 87 ethnicities, with 30 per cent of funding being allocated to new and emerging multicultural communities. The grants process also prioritised organisations from regional and rural areas – ensuring community organisations that work with smaller populations received necessary support.

Events funded include the Lunar Festival hosted by the Victoria Street Business Association, the Ballarat African Association's Africa Day Celebration, the Assyrian Annual Festival hosted by the Assyrian Church of the East, and the Melbourne Italian Festa organised by the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Australia.
