ACT Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Grants Programs

The aim of these grant programs is to provide funding support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for leadership training for both formal and informal development opportunities for participants and to showcase the cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living in the ACT community through the development of innovative projects that contribute to sustainable communities by highlighting and promoting cultural diversity and social harmony.

Total funding available across all three grant programs (Scholarship, Cultural and Leadership) is $200,000 (GST exclusive).
