Settlement Services Program

The Settlement Grants Program (SGP) is designed to respond to the needs of newly arrived migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants experiencing difficulties in accessing mainstream services.
The Settlement Grants program is now administered by the Department of Social Services (DSS).

Under the SGP program, settlement information is given to newly arrived migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants to assist them with transition into the new environment and become self-reliant and participate equitably in the Australian society as soon as possible after arrival.  The provision of services is done under three service types: orientation to Australia, community development and integration.

The SGP projects endeavour to generate and build community leadership, enhance participation in all aspects of life in Australia and a shared community vision.
