What is the program?

The Victorian Government is committed to promoting an inclusive society in which every Victorian is able to preserve and share their culture and traditions, and have spaces that they can make their own.

The Community Infrastructure and Cultural Precincts Program (CICP) Program provides funding to help maintain existing community infrastructure, build new community infrastructure, or enhance cultural precincts for culturally diverse communities. This initiative is a discretionary merit-based grants program administered by the Multicultural Affairs and Social Cohesion (MASC) Division of the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPC). 

The objectives of the CICP program are to:

  • promote greater use of community facilities by Victoria’s culturally diverse communities; increasing their participation in activities and enhancing access to services, and
  • enable Victoria’s cultural precincts to remain sustainable and attractive for cultural and tourism activities.
