Grants and Funding
The Department grants funding for projects that address a need for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Funding is allocated through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS), National Partnership Agreements, Special Accounts and Special Appropriations.
For further information about the IAS, including grant opportunities, see funding under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy.
A significant level of grant funding is also available through Indigenous-specific and mainstream programs delivered by other agencies. Information about all government funding opportunities is available at GrantConnect.
From 1 January 2018, Commonwealth agencies are required to report all grants awarded at GrantConnect. Indigenous grants awarded by the Department prior to this date are detailed in the following registers.
