NAIDOC Week Grants

Aboriginal Affairs grants support NAIDOC celebrations and events within communities across NSW.

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.

NAIDOC Week is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society. NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July.

Many communities in NSW also choose to conduct NAIDOC activities outside of the designated week in July when weather conditions are more comfortable.

The national NAIDOC Theme for 2018 is ‘Because of her, we can!’.

More information about Aboriginal Affairs’ NAIDOC Week grants will become available soon.
