Aboriginal Culture and Healing Flood Recovery Grant Program
Emergency Recovery Victoria (ERV) has partnered with the Federation of Victorian Traditional Owner Corporations (Federation) to deliver the Aboriginal Culture and Healing Flood Recovery Grant Program for the October 2022 Victorian floods.
A grant pool of $800,000 (ex GST) has been dedicated to support Traditional Owner and Aboriginal communities in Victoria in the recovery phase.

The grant is targeting support for Aboriginal communities affected by the October 2022 Victorian floods. The grant supports Aboriginal communities leading their recovery and healing to ensure community-led recovery approaches lead to better outcomes for Aboriginal communities. 

The grant can be used for a range of activities like on-Country healing events, Traditional Owner led recovery projects and activities that make Country more resilient to future flood impacts.  

The grant program is seeking a range of applications from organisations that operate across different areas affected by the floods. Funding is open to Aboriginal organisations and social enterprises and may be supported by auspice organisations.

To be eligible, an organisation must be in a listed Local Government Area (LGA) directly impacted by the October 2022 Victorian floods. Applicants must demonstrate that their project is relevant to the flood affected area and describe how the flood directly impacted on their community.  

Grants will be available for up to $160,000 (ex. GST) to meet the recovery needs of Victorian Aboriginal communities affected by the October 2022 Victorian floods. 

 

Applications open: 9 October 2023  

Applications close: 19 November 2023
