This program empowers and provides opportunities for Aboriginal organisations to undertake projects that:

  • contribute to ongoing sustainable management of significant Aboriginal cultural landscapes in New South Wales
  • contribute to healthier environments and communities
  • develop project management capabilities of Aboriginal groups
  • encourage new collaborations and positive relationships with other organisations, government and stakeholders.

Grants of up to $80,000 are available over the 2 stages:

  • Stage 1 Planning – up to $12,000 for project planning.
  • Stage 2 Implementation – up to $67,000 to complete the project on-ground works, plus $1,000 quarantined for the mandatory financial audit, totalling $68,000.

For each grant recipient, they will coordinate and deliver face-to-face workshops for 2 key staff/participants in your project at the beginning of Stage 1. In addition, proposed grantees are strongly encouraged to invite an Elder to participate in these workshops to act as a community representative, knowledge holder and relevant cultural authority.

These workshops will provide you with:

  • support and guidance to develop a plan specific to your project
  • mentoring, advice, and networking opportunities
  • an understanding of the Trust's reporting requirements.
