Settlement Grants Program Evaluation Briefing Paper: February 2017

Settlement Services grants (SGP) are an important element of the government’s broad commitment to settlement services, and are designed to provide a varied range of projects aimed at assisting migrants as they settle into their new homes. SGP has evolved and been refined over many years resulting in a robust grants program that is closely aligned to client needs and which successfully leverages the strong connections agencies have within their communities. The specialist knowledge of agencies and staff has been built up over time resulting in settlement agencies generating significant expertise in program delivery and risk management. Briefing paper released in February 2017.
