Funeral assistance grants

 

Overview

As part of its commitment to the Aboriginal people of New South Wales (NSW) and to fulfil its legislative commitments to provide community benefits to members of local Aboriginal land councils and the wider Aboriginal community, the NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) offers land council members, and Aboriginal people resident in NSW the ability to seek limited financial grants under a Community benefits scheme.

A Funeral fund was established in 1991-1992 and membership of the fund was open to all NSW Aboriginal people. This fund closed in 1994 however, persons who were financial members were entitled to a funeral grant of up to $5000.

NSW Aboriginal people who were not a member of the Funeral fund are able to apply for a NSWALC funeral grant of up to $1000 to assist with covering funeral costs.

Grants are paid directly to funeral service providers under this Community benefits scheme.

This grant scheme is operated under strict criteria.

For more information, please see the links below or contact the NSWALC for further advice.
