Applications Now Open for NAIDOC Week Grants

Posted: 21 Mar 2017
Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith encourages grassroots organisations to hold local events during NAIDOC Week 2017 and apply for a share of the $200,000 in grants to help celebrate the history, culture and accomplishments of Aboriginal people.

The national theme this year is ‘Our Languages Matter’, highlighting the importance of growing and sharing Aboriginal languages. NSW is linguistically diverse with over 35 Aboriginal languages - all currently critically endangered.

Stuart Ayres said,  "We have a number of active local Aboriginal groups in Penrith and I encourage them to consider applying for a grant and hold an event to celebrate our Aboriginal communities’ strengths and achievements."

Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Sarah Mitchell said NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all in NSW to get together and celebrate the unique place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our communities.

“This year NSW will become the first state in the nation to introduce legislation to recognise and protect Aboriginal languages, as well as establishing a Centre for Aboriginal Languages of NSW to support community-led revival efforts,” Mrs Mitchell said.

Grant applications totalling $200,000, are open through to Thursday 27 April. Not-for-profit community groups are encouraged to apply via the Aboriginal Affairs website.

NAIDOC, which stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee, is held nationally each year in the first full week of July. This year NAIDOC will run from 2 – 9 July.
