2019 Grant applications open for NAIDOC Week celebrations

Moreton Bay Regional Council is offering grants of up to $1,000 per organisation to help deliver a range of activities across the region to celebrate NAIDOC Week, running from 7-14 July 2019.

 

Lifestyle and Amenity Spokesperson Councillor Denise Sims said community organisations looking to host activities, events, or programs to mark NAIDOC Week were encouraged to apply for a council grant now.

 

“Moreton Bay is home to many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and language groups, and we want to help our community recognise their contributions, rich history, culture, and achievements,” Cr Sims said.

 

“Last year, successful applicants used funding to hold a wide range of NAIDOC Week activities and events, including art workshops, a flag raising ceremony and a family fun day.”

 

This year’s theme is ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth - Let’s work together for a shared future’
