Grant program to support connection to Country

Posted: October 13th, 2020

Grants to support West Australian Aboriginal people and organisations to connect to Country and Culture are being offered by the State Government.

Connecting to Country provides grants up to $25,000 for a wide range of activities that foster the transfer of knowledge between generations, preservation of culture and strengthening of communities.

The funding may support costs such as travel, equipment hire, specialist services, documentation or other costs associated with the project.

Applications are open to Aboriginal communities across Western Australia; or Western Australian groups that work with Aboriginal people in community, who can demonstrate strong Aboriginal governance and leadership in their application.

Connecting to Country is administered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. For more information on the grant program, click here

Applications are now open, and close on November 10, 2020.
