Queensland Government’s biggest round of reconciliation grants now open

Celebrating Reconciliation Small Grants Program

22 November, 2019 –

The third round of the Celebrating Reconciliation Small Grants Program is our biggest ever which means even more Queenslanders can celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, traditions, and histories that continue to shape our state.

Community groups can apply for up to $15,000 in funding to support activities during or around National Reconciliation Week 2020.

National Reconciliation Week is a national campaign held each year from 27 May to 3 June and commemorates two significant milestones in Australian’s reconciliation journey—the successful 1967 referendum and the 1992 High Court Mabo decision.

Past rounds have inspired a wide range of reconciliation activities – including traditional performances, cultural displays, art exhibitions, storytelling and fun runs – to bring together Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Queenslanders in the spirit of reconciliation.

Beyond National Reconciliation Week, the Queensland Government recognises that reconciliation is an ongoing commitment 365 days a year, every year.

Statewide consultation is underway as part of our state’s Path to Treaty and I encourage all Queenslanders to join the conversation as part of our shared journey to reconciliation.

Grant applications close 9am (AEST) on Monday 9 December 2019.
