Sports and recreation

We provide funding to organisations across Australia in support of increasing the social participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in sports and active recreation activities. The aim of this is to improve wellbeing and resilience.

Funding is provided to deliver projects that encourage Indigenous people to participate in sporting and recreational activities to contribute to community capacity building, safety and wellbeing. We also focus on secondary outcomes such as improved school attendance, keeping communities safe and people in a job.

Elements of support may include: sports participation activities, traditional Indigenous games, small grants programs providing funds to eligible individuals or Indigenous sporting teams to compete in events, outreach activities, competitions and carnivals.
