The Malinauskas Labor Government is delivering on our election commitment to ethnic media representatives with the introduction of a new Multicultural Media Grant stream.
A strong message to support the future of South Australia’s diverse cultural makeup, we are increasing the multicultural budget by $16 million over four years to support our communities.
The grants aim to support media organisations in the continuation of improving their information, entertainment and education services for multicultural communities.
Media Grants of up to $20,000 are available to upgrade equipment or undertake training.
The Government is also nearly doubling funding for the popular Expand Together Grant program, with more communities set to benefit.
A funding boost to over $1 million will see organisations access infrastructure upgrades, with a new focus on community transport and security upgrades.
Grant applications opened today, Friday 1 July.

Multicultural media organisations play a crucial role in ensuring news and entertainment from both in Australia and across the globe is delivered in a diverse range of languages that reflect the cultural heritage of South Australia.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced how important it has been to deliver up to date, culturally and linguistically appropriate health messages to keep our entire community safe.
Our Multicultural Media Grants offers funding support to eligible multicultural media organisations to build skill development in communication through training and the purchase of equipment.
