 The Expand Together Grants are administered by Multicultural Affairs within the Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC). The grants provide one-off funding to eligible multicultural organisations to upgrade, extend or build community facilities, to upgrade security, to purchase a community bus or van, or to purchase equipment for use by South Australia’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities. The Expand Together Grants aim to ensure there are necessary facilities and equipment for community members to come together, access the services and programs they need, and connect with the wider local community network. The priority for this round is investment in security upgrades, community infrastructure and community transport.
