NAIDOC Week grants available

Not-for-profit organisations and community groups are invited to apply for grant funding to run NAIDOC Week activities this year.

Eurobodalla Council provides grants of up to $500 for activities that promote partnership with the Aboriginal community and encourage wider community participation in NAIDOC Week, to be held 8-15 July.

National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week provides a special opportunity for Aboriginal people to promote their history and culture.

Past Eurobodalla NAIDOC Week grant recipients have included community cultural days, women’s mentoring groups and Aboriginal language programs, Aboriginal bush tucker gardens and NAIDOC-themed competitions.

This year Council is looking for activities that provide opportunities to learn about and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women as part of the 2018 NAIDOC Week theme ‘Because of her, we can!’.

The theme aims to emphasise and celebrate the role local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women play in the community. For at least 65,000 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have carried the dreaming stories, song lines, languages and knowledge that have maintained and enriched Aboriginal culture.

Grant applications open Wednesday 7 March and close 4pm Wednesday 11 April 2018. For information about eligibility and an electronic application form visit
