Not-for-profit organisations can access a share of $400,000 through the Stronger Together festivals and events grants program to help with the cost of hosting an event if it is held before 30 June 2022.

Multiculturalism Minister Natalie Ward said the aim of the grants program is to shine a light on the traditions that make NSW a great place to live.

“NSW is home to a wonderful, harmonious blend of multicultural communities,” Mrs Ward said.

“Whether it’s a festival in one of our beautiful parks or an event that showcases a culture’s culinary delights, we’d like to hear from our multicultural communities about their plans for 2022.”

Applications for funding close on Friday 17 December 2021.
