VICTORIA: The Andrews Labor Government is encouraging Victorian community organisations to apply for funding under a new $200,000 grants program to help prevent or reduce gambling harm in culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. Grants of up to $20,000 are available to grassroots CALD organisations for projects that offer assistance in combating problem gambling in these communities. Minister for Gaming and Liquor Regulation, Marlene Kairouz, announced the funding at a joint Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation-Multicultural Centre for Women's Health forum in Melbourne. The event brought together established CALD community organisations to share their experiences and strategies for managing gambling harm.
