NAIDOC Week Grants

Aboriginal Affairs NAIDOC Week Grants have now closed.

2018 NAIDOC Week Grant applications are currently being assessed and all applicants will be notified of the outcome.

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.

NAIDOC Week is a time for all Australians to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that First Nations people Australians make to our country and our society.

NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July and this year will be held from 8 to 15 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!’ which celebrates the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make - to our communities, our families, our rich history and to our nation.
