Cash Up For Grabs for Indigenous Groups
Friday, 27th September 2013 at 2:04 pm

Grants of up to $10,000 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups and individuals are now available under an ACT Government’s grants program.

The $205,000 of funding is for leadership, training and development opportunities to showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures in the ACT.

Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, Shane Rattenbury, said this year the grants program also included scholarships.

“The new scholarship grants aim to encourage and support ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to study and train, and ultimately be employed in the local sector,” Rattenbury said.

“Leadership Grants encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Canberrans to develop the knowledge and skills to lead and engage on behalf of their communities and organisations.

“Cultural Grants provide ACT-based community organisations with once-only grants for programs or events promoting wider understanding of the cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in Canberra.”

Individuals may apply for grants of up to $3,000 and organisations may apply for grants of up to $10,000.

An information session for interested applicants will be held on Wednesday, October 9 from 10am to 11am at the ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Centre, 245 Lady Denman Drive, Yarramundi Reach.  Applications for the grants close October 31.
