From May to June 2016 three-year funding agreements totalling $14.4 million were put in place with Empowered Communities backbone organisations in seven regions.

The funding provides critical capability and support for Indigenous leaders as they work with their communities and partner organisations on priorities and long-term development agendas to secure sustainable reforms.

In the eighth region, North East Arnhem Land, Indigenous leaders are yet to determine what approach they wish to take.
