The United Nations declared 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages to raise awareness about the importance of preserving, supporting and promoting Indigenous languages.

To commemorate 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages, the Queensland Government launched the inaugural Indigenous Languages Grants, which sought to highlight the importance of preserving and maintaining Australia’s First Nations languages. At the same time, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders worked in partnership with the Queensland Government to ensure that Aboriginal languages and Torres Strait Islander languages in Queensland are strong, acknowledged, maintained and accessible to all Queenslanders.

In 2020, Queenslanders can apply for a share in $200,000 to support Indigenous language preservation and revitalisation across the state.

Indigenous Languages Grants up to $25,000 are available to eligible Queenslanders to support activities that help preserve and maintain Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday, 6 October 2020.
