The Ukrainian Community and Settlement Support (UCASS) Grant Program

 


UCASS Program

The Ukrainian Community and Settlement Support (UCASS) program seeks to enable the member organisations of the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations to undertake critical work to welcome and support recently arrived displaced Ukrainians.


 

Supporting the Ukrainian Community

The program provides grants to member organisations of The Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations (at the time the grant round opens) undertaking critical work to welcome and support recent arrivals from Ukraine.

The program aims to strengthen whole of community engagement and capacity building. The successful organisations will be supported through an organisational capacity-building program, as necessary and appropriate.

The program is administered by The Social Policy Group (SPG) on behalf of the Australian Government.
