NAIDOC WEEK GRANTS AVAILABLE TO ORGANISATIONS IN GOULBURN ELECTORATE
Eligible organisations in the Goulburn Region can take advantage of the opportunity to apply for grants supporting NAIDOC Week 2018 activities, Member for Goulburn, Pru Goward said today.
The grants of up to $3,000 are available to grass roots organisations to run local events marking NAIDOC Week, the annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Ms Goward said this was a great initiative from the NSW Government.
“NAIDOC Week is a unique opportunity for the Goulburn Electorate to come together and recognise the culture, history and achievements of our First Australians and their contributions to this country,” she said.
Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Sarah Mitchell said that she looks forward to seeing how communities across the state use the NAIDOC Week grants.
“I encourage local organisations in Goulburn and right across the state to apply for grant funding to host events during this NAIDOC Week that celebrate the important place Aboriginal people play in our communities,” she said.
Grant applications open Tuesday 6 March and close Friday 20 April 2018.
