ClosedGrant Closed: 30th of October 2023 - 10:00 am Value: Up to $250,000 Run By: Aboriginal Affairs NSW Further Information: https://www.aboriginalaffairs.nsw.gov.au/grants/community-and-place-grants/

The Aboriginal Affairs NSW Community and Place Grants Program aims to deliver tangible local benefit and impact to Aboriginal communities against the Closing the Gap socio-economic outcome targets, recognising that Aboriginal communities have the solutions to problems or issues in their community.

The Community and Place Grants Program aims to support one-off projects which include programs, equipment, vehicles, and infrastructure developed by local Aboriginal communities, and with local community support to drive change and contribute towards the 17 socio-economic outcome targets under the National Agreement on Closing the Gap. The projects must contribute to the Closing the Gap targets specifically, not the broad outcome area.

Funding will be allocated across three Program Categories:

  • Programs ($4m)
  • Infrastructure ($4m)
  • Equipment and vehicles ($2m)

To be funded, projects must:

  • Be delivered in a local Aboriginal community in NSW (state-wide programs or activities are not eligible for funding). Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for guidance on what is considered a local community for the purpose of this grant.
  • Show how the project will contribute to one or more CtG socio-economic outcome targets.
  • Demonstrate local Aboriginal community support and involvement in the development and
    delivery of the project.

Projects could include:

  • Activities, programs, the purchase or lease of equipment and capital works.
  • A single project or multiple activities that form a larger project.
  • Local partnership projects where all parties are Aboriginal Community ControlledOrganisations (ACCOs), or Aboriginal community groups, and a tangible program or infrastructure outcome is being delivered in an Aboriginal community.
