Aboriginal community organisations and their project partners are encouraged to apply for a share of the Stolen Generations Community Reparations Fund announced today by the State Government.

The $5m fund has been established to support projects or programs that will promote healing for members of the Stolen Generations, their families and the wider community.

A recent community consultation process identified a number of desirable project themes including recording personal histories, family history research, healing programs, arts and cultural activities, community education, memorials and educational awards.

Expressions of Interest close on 24 March 2017.

This is part of the State Government’s $11m Stolen Generations Reparations Scheme, which will fund up to $6m in ex-gratia payments to individuals who are members of the Stolen Generation.

The Individual Reparations Scheme is currently open for applications and will close on 31 March 2017.

More information, including guidelines on how to apply, is available online.
