Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Leslie Williams today announced an additional round of grants to support the revitalisation of Aboriginal languages through community-lead initiatives would be offered in 2016.

Mrs Williams said the 'Our Languages, Our Way' Community Language Grants would enable community owned and led organisations to apply for funding of up to $30,000.
