FECCA is working with the Federal Government and other organisations to administer the CALD COVID-19 Health Small Grants Fund. This Fund will help multicultural community groups to lead grassroots communication activities around COVID-19 and the vaccination rollout, targeting CALD communities.
This is funded by the Federal Department of Health and will be implemented in collaboration with The Settlement Council of Australia, Migration Council Australia, and The Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network.
Why you should participate
The Fund is to ensure that all Australians, including those from CALD backgrounds, have access to information on the COVID-19 vaccination. Together we need to combat COVID-19 in Australia. You can make a difference by providing accurate and useful information in your communities.
