“The 2019 grants supported great projects, seminars and celebrations hosted by a number of community groups across the ACT.

“The ACT Government is committed to fostering understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and culture, recognising our shared history and building a better future together.”

The ACT Reconciliation Council will help assess the applications as part of its role overseeing the program for Reconciliation Day on 1 June 2020.
