The 2020 NAIDOC Local Grants round have re-opened

NAIDOC Local Grants offer an opportunity for community groups to organise activities that celebrate our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures, achievements, and our continuing contributions to our country and society.

The NAIDOC Local Grants support all activities, big and small. The majority of grants are for amounts of $500 to $1,000.

All activities will need to meet government guidance aimed at reducing the risks associated with COVID-19, including requirements for physical distancing.

Organisations that submitted an application for the NAIDOC Local Grants Round that closed in March 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions will need to submit a new application. These organisations should have received a copy of their previous application from NIAA to refer to in preparing their new application.
The application package is published on Grant Connect and includes information on eligibility and guidance on how to apply.

For more information or general queries: email NAIDOCgrants@niaa.gov.au or contact your NIAA Regional Office.

Applications Close: Monday 17th August 2020
