A new measure announced as part of the Northern Australia White Paper package will help native title holders engage more effectively with potential investors and governments seeking to use native title land.

Native title corporations across Australia will now be able to receive additional funding and training support to increase their opportunities for economic independence.

This will allow more corporations to become self-sufficient and sustainable.

The Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, announced the investment of $20 million over four years at the National Native Title Conference in Port Douglas on 17 June. The announcement has been welcomed by stakeholders.
