Settlement Grants Program

The Albury Multicultural Officer service is funded by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship under the Settlement Grants Program. The purpose of the program is to provide settlement assistance and information, provide referral to mainstream agencies and to advocate for migrants’ issues.

Outcomes
The short-term outcome of the scheme is to address immediate needs such as language classes, housing issues, child care, education and employment. The long-term outcome is that all migrants and refugees living permanently in Australia can participate fully in Australian society.

Eligibility
Settlement programs are targeted at people who have been in Australia for less than 5 years and who arrived under the Humanitarian program or Family migration with low English proficiency.

Funded by the Department of Social Services
