Federation of Ethnic Communities' Councils of Australia (FECCA)

The Federation of Ethnic Communities' Councils of Australia (FECCA) is working with the Federal Government and other organisations to administer the CALD COVID-19 Health Small Grants Fund.

This Fund will help multicultural community groups to lead grassroots communication activities around COVID-19 and the vaccination rollout, targeting CALD communities.

This is funded by the Federal Department of Health and will be implemented in collaboration with The Settlement Council of Australia, Migration Council Australia, and The Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network.


Priority is placed on communication and engagement proposals that aim to achieve the following objectives: 

  • Target communities that experience barriers to accessing information on the COVID19 Vaccination Program 
  • Target communities that have hesitancy on the COVID-19 Vaccination Program 
  • Provide the opportunity for the community to identify and respond to these issues and concerns 
  • Foster community involvement and participation 
  • Encourage partnerships among community organisations 
  • Provide a measurable, cost-effective means to deliver outcomes

Funding Information


FECCA will administer grants of $2500, $3500 or $5000 to groups or organisations to fund short-term, one-off, communication and outreach projects.


Why you should participate?


The Fund is to ensure that all Australians, including those from CALD backgrounds, have access to information on the COVID-19 vaccination. Together they need to combat COVID-19 in Australia. You can make a difference by providing accurate and useful information in your communities.
