The Settlement Grants Program (SGP) provides settlement support services to eligible newly arrived migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants.

What is the Settlement Grants Program (SGP)

The Settlement Grants Program (SGP) provides settlement support services to eligible newly arrived migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants. The aim is to assist them with transition into their new environment, become self-sufficient and participate equitably in the Australian society as soon as possible after their arrival.

We work with clients and families by providing individual advocacy and referral, group information sessions and practical skills workshops on a range of topics.
