What is the MCIF?

The Multicultural Community Infrastructure Fund (MCIF) offers grants to culturally diverse communities across Victoria to support the building, upgrading and fitout of community infrastructure.

The objectives of the MCIF are to support Victoria’s culturally diverse communities to feel connected with their traditional culture and identity as they participate in and contribute to our wider society. The MCIF seeks to achieve this by supporting the delivery of new facilities or spaces for culturally diverse communities and increasing the safety, accessibility and condition of existing services.

MCIF is underpinned by Victoria’s Multicultural Policy Statement and seeks to ensure that every Victorian has the opportunity to thrive in a peaceful and prosperous society with a shared sense of belonging, respect, acceptance and contribution.

There are two streams of funding available:

Small Grants

Requests between $500 - $100,000 will be considered for minor fitouts or upgrades to existing community facilities.

Large Grants

Requests between $100,001 - $750,000 will be considered for major upgrades of existing facilities or towards the construction of new facilities.
