social connection and cohesion in diverse communities. Grants of up to $40,000 are available for projects that support economic and social participation of Queenslanders from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and up to $120,000 in funding is available for projects that break down the barriers facing young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to build a greater sense of belonging.
Applications for funding close on Friday, 10 December. For more information go to: www. cyjma.qld.gov.au/cmq-program

Shop Local This Christmas
Residents of 4107 are being reminded to shop local this Christmas. With many small businesses still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a great time to take a look at the amazing local options for Christmas gifts. Rather than risk late deliveries by shopping online, or helping another big multinational corporation make more money, support the businesses we have right here in Sandgate! There’s plenty of great gift ideas just a few steps from home.
