Aboriginal Development Grants



The Victorian Government is investing $4.7 million over four years towards research on country and local projects with Traditional Owners via the Water for Victoria initiative.

The Aboriginal Development Grants aim to provide the state government with a better understanding of Aboriginal water values, uses, aims and requirements, including cultural heritage. They also aims to enhance Aboriginal communities' wellbeing by restoring the damage that has been done to Victoria's waterways, and offer opportunities for economic development.

There are three grant categories:

  1. Grants of up to $200,000 which aim to identify Aboriginal values and uses of Aboriginal Traditional Ecological Knowledge
  2. Grants of up to $120,000 which provide funding for organisations to recruit an Aboriginal Water Office (AWO)
  3. A combination of categories one and two.

The grants are open to:

Applications for 2018 close 7 February 2018.
