Australian Government – 2023 NAIDOC Local Grants Opportunity

Status: Ongoing

Region: Australia wide


The 2023 NAIDOC Local Grants aims to assist with the cost of activities being held during NAIDOC Week 2023 (2 – 9 July) that celebrate First Nations’ histories, cultures, achievements and continuing contributions to our country and society. Activities should align with the 2023 National NAIDOC Week Theme For our Elders.

This grant opportunity provides funding to organisations to contribute to the costs of local and regional NAIDOC activities across Australia.


Both Indigenous and non-Indigenous legal entities may apply for 2023 NAIDOC Local Grants funding. Where there are two similarly ranked proposals, preference may be given to:

  • First Nations organisations (at least 51% Indigenous ownership and at least 51% Indigenous control)
  • activities that will involve First Nations peoples and communities in the design and delivery of the activity
  • activities in remote areas and areas where there is a high First Nations population, and include the local community.

Applicants must meet all eligibility criteria outlined in the 2023 NAIDOC Local Grants – Grant Opportunity Guidelines.
