National Justice Reinvestment Program – Round 2

Grant Closes: 9th of May 2024 Value: Up to $10 Million Run By: Attorney-General's Department Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=8645f34e-8ea4-4164-99eb-4e549dad3d3d

Justice reinvestment aims to prevent and reduce Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contact with the justice system in a particular place or community. It enables Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and leaders to come together to identify local solutions to local issues, using strengths of community, cultural knowledge and stories to measure progress over time. It offers a way for communities to drive local solutions through improved collaboration and partnership with governments and service providers.

The Australian Government is committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and communities to improve the justice outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, in line with the National Agreement on Closing the Gap (the National Agreement) targets and Priority Reforms.

Successful Justice Reinvestment Projects funded under this program will:

  • aim to reduce Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contact with the justice system
  • be an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and community-led project
  • take a collaborative approach, and consider a systems focus
  • take a place-based approach
  • be informed by community knowledge and other data.


Applications will be assessed in 2 cycles:

  • Assessment cycle 1 opens 5 January 2024 to 9 May 2024.
  • Assessment cycle 2 opens 9 May 2024 to 10 September 2024.
