About Settlement Grants

Settlement Grants are an activity under the DSS Families and Communities Program.

Settlement Grants provide support for humanitarian entrants and other eligible migrants in their first five years of life in Australia, with a focus on fostering social and economic participation, personal well-being, independence and community connectedness.

For further information about the types of services and support delivered under Settlement Grants, see Settlement Services Program Guidelines.

From 1 January 2019, Settlement Grants will be known as the Settlement Engagement and Transition Support (SETS) program. The program includes two components, SETS – Client Services and SETS – Community Capacity Building.
