A list of organisations recommended for funding under the Government’s Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) grant funding round has today been published on the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s website.
“My department is still working through contract negotiations with providers and the funding amounts will be published when those negotiations are complete,” Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion said.
“I made the decision to conduct negotiations in March to give my department the necessary time to make sure the funding agreements and projects deliver the long-term, sustainable results Indigenous communities want and deserve.
“I have made a commitment that there will be no service delivery gaps as a result of this process. Where gaps are identified, my department will work closely with providers and communities to address those issues as a matter of urgency.
“At the end of all negotiations with providers I will publicly provide the total investment I have made through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy grant funding round and details of each grant will be listed on the PM&C website within 14 days of each agreement taking effect.
“Through its regional network, PM&C will work with organisations that have been unsuccessful in applying for funding to help them transition to new arrangements.
“My Department will also be available to provide feedback to unsuccessful applicants to potentially strengthen their applications should they wish to apply for other funding in the future.”
The list of organisations recommended for funding under the IAS grant funding round is available on the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet website.
