NSW Government continues to support community NAIDOC Week celebrations


The NSW Government is again offering grants for grassroots organisations to run local events in NAIDOC Week, the annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Sarah Mitchell said she is proud the NSW Government is continuing to acknowledge the significance of NAIDOC Week and encourages all eligible organisations to take advantage of this opportunity.

“NAIDOC Week is a unique opportunity to recognise the culture, history and achievements of our First Australians and their contributions to this country,” said Ms Mitchell.

Not-for-profit community groups are invited to apply for funding of up to $3,000. A total of $200,000 is being made available to support NAIDOC activities across NSW.

Grant applications open Tuesday 6 March and close 5pm Friday 20 April 2018.
