Community Language Schools Grants Program

ClosedGrant Closed: 9th of October 2023 - 9:00 pm Value: Up to $30,000 Run By: Australian Government Department of Home Affairs Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=ac12ae59-a5a8-4bcd-8c25-592d0ce5469b

For the purpose of this grant opportunity, a Community Language School (CLS) is defined as a not-for-profit community organisation that holds language classes outside of Australian school hours, for a minimum of 2 hours per week of instructor led language tuition for at least 26 weeks of the year using a set curriculum .

The objectives of the program will be to strengthen the social inclusion and prosperity of Australia’s successful multicultural society by supporting more young Australians to acquire a second language:

  • to connect them to the languages of their parents, grandparents and broader communities
  • enable their participation in a broader range of jobs in an economy closely integrated into a global market of diverse trading partners.

The program will enable CLS to expand the delivery of language education to more school-aged children, including pre-schoolers.

The grant opportunity consists of 3 tiers and 2 supplementary payment options for eligible CLS to apply for the following:

  • Tier 1: For CLS that do not meet eligibility requirements for funding in their respective state or territory, and provide classes for a minimum of 5 students. Student numbers can be made up of a combination of pre-school and/or school-aged students.
  • Tier 2: For established  CLS with 50 or fewer students. Student numbers can be made up of a combination of pre-school and/or school-aged students.
  • Tier 3: For established  CLS with 51 or more students. Student numbers can be made up of a combination of pre-school and/or school-aged students.

In addition, 2 supplementary payments are available to CLS which are eligible for Tier 2 or Tier 3 funding:

  • Supplementary Payment One: For CLS to enhance child safety and early learning conditions for pre-school aged children. To be eligible to apply for this supplementary payment, a CLS must have been operating for at least 2 years prior to their application for funding.
  • Supplementary Payment 2: For new CLS to support their establishment and growth. Student numbers can be made up of a combination of pre-school and/or school-aged students.
