The Queensland Government is committed to establishing a three-year $6 million Empowering Families Innovation Fund to generate and support new programs and initiatives that reduce the disproportionate representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in the child protection system and help keep kids safe and well.

The Empowering Families Innovation Grants aims to ignite game-changing ideas for initiatives, programs or ways of working that will help keep Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children safe, well and connected to family, culture and country. 

It is a $3 million program that will be distributed across three funding rounds over three years starting in March 2017. 

It will provide eligible groups and organisations with seed funding of up to $100,000 to turn their ideas to make a difference to the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children into a reality.
