2022 Aboriginal Languages Revival Program (CLOSED)


The Aboriginal Languages Trust is calling for applications for the refreshed and simplified Grants Program to support projects that reawaken, grow, nurture, promote and raise awareness of Aboriginal languages in communities across NSW.

The Aboriginal Languages Revival Program focusses on small, seed funding to reach more communities across the state. This is an open, competitive program for $1,000 to $15,000 for one-off support to Aboriginal community organisations and groups to commence and build on smaller scale revival projects.

What has changed?

The program has been redesigned in response to Community feedback from the 2021 Aboriginal Languages Strategic Plan consultations, with over 400 people (80% Aboriginal) consulted across New South Wales.

Community advised that the Grants process was too complex, we have listened and actioned to ensure the Program is as accessible as possible for community.

Apply now

To apply for funding, you will need to complete and submit the application form through SmartyGrants.

Who is eligible?

Aboriginal run or controlled groups and organisations located in NSW.
