NAIDOC Local Grants program open

Eligible entities are invited to apply for funding in 2021–22 for the 2022 NAIDOC Local Grants Round, delivered under Program 1.4 – Culture and Capability of the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS).

This grant provides funding to Indigenous and non‑Indigenous organisations to contribute to the costs of local and regional NAIDOC activities across Australia.

NAIDOC activities should align with the 2022 theme ‘Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!’.

The objectives of the program are to promote:

  • the expression, engagement and conservation of Indigenous Australians’ cultures
  • Indigenous Australians’ participation in the social and economic life of Australia through healing, and strengthening the capability, governance and leadership of Indigenous Australians, organisations and communities, and
  • broader understanding and acceptance of the unique place of Indigenous Australians’ cultures in Australian society.

Applications close at 9:00 pm AEDT on 22 February 2022.

Information about applying for this round can be found on the Community Grants Hub website and GrantConnect.
