NAIDOC Week activity grants

NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week provides a special opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements.

Each year Council offers NAIDOC Week activity grants up to $500 to community groups, schools and non-profits to assist in the delivery of activities celebrating NAIDOC in Eurobodalla. Grants are awarded to projects or initiatives that make a positive contribution to the community, promote the understanding of NAIDOC and demonstrate creativity, vision and originality.

In previous years, NAIDOC Week grants have been put towards the cost of:

  • Aboriginal flag raising ceremonies
  • story telling activities
  • indigenous games and sporting events
  • displaying a collection of cultural artefacts
  • Aboriginal language programs
  • Aboriginal art and craft demonstrations.
  • bush tucker gardens
  • murals.

NAIDOC Week 2023 runs from Sunday 2 July to Sunday 9 July with the theme For Our Elders.

Applications are open from Monday 20 February and close Friday 31 March

Successful applicants will be notified in May 2023.
