Fostering Integration Grants: supporting social cohesion in the community


Roots Tv Inc has received a $20,000 funding boost to help migrants fully participate in the Australian community.

The Fostering Integration Grants program provides up to $50,000 to not-for-profit organisations to help migrants better integrate into Australian life and support initiatives for social cohesion, such as promoting employment and community participation.

Across the country, the Liberal Government is providing $9.3 million to organisations working at the grassroots level to assist migrants.

Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, said the funding Roots Tv Inc will receive will enhance the important work they do in the local community.

“Local community organisations such as Roots Tv Inc have an important role to play in creating social cohesion and ensuring the unity, prosperity, and security of our nation,” Mr Porter said.

“The Fostering Integration Grants program is about supporting organisations that work at the grassroots level in their community and have a strong understanding of the challenges facing migrants.

“The grants will encourage economic and social integration and help migrants, particularly young people, women and those in regional areas, access the workforce and participate more in the community.”

The Liberal Government is committed to working closely with organisations in communities across Australia to provide valuable services and activities that foster social cohesion and create a stronger Australia.
