The next ABA beneficial grants funding round will open at 8:00 am AEST on Monday 31 July 2017. In order to support organisations to prepare an application, an example of the application form and grant guidelines are now available, and can be downloaded and printed. 

ABA beneficial grant funding is provided for one-off grant funding (non-recurrent funding) proposals that benefit Aboriginal people living in the Northern Territory.

There are four categories under which organisations will be able to apply for ABA grant funding:

  • Supporting Enterprises
  • Supporting Community
  • Supporting Land, Sea and Waters Management and Use
  • Supporting Culture, Language and Leadership

This includes projects that deliver on the Australian Government’s key priorities of getting children to school, adults to work and making communities safer.

The funding round closes on 28 August 2017 at 5:00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. Applications must be submitted before that time.
