Rainforest Aboriginal Grants Program

The Rainforest Aboriginal Grants program provides Rainforest Aboriginal People, and their organisations funding to develop and implement projects that:

  • enhance knowledge

  • fulfil cultural responsibilities to country

  • improve capacity to manage the cultural and natural values of their traditional land and sea estates in the Wet Tropics region.

Rainforest Aboriginal Peoples and their organisations can apply for funding up to $10,000 to support their projects. Successful applicants have undertaken projects to improve cultural recognition and management, and on-ground partnerships in World Heritage management, support leadership, mentoring and Country-based planning.

The 2020 Rainforest Aboriginal Grants funding is now closed and a total of 23 applications were received over the two round and 10 successfully received funding for their submitted projects.
