Grants and sponsorship
The Department of Aboriginal Affairs (DAA) provides funding assistance for the following programs:
- PALS Awards - PALS is a joint initiative between the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and BHP Billiton that encourages Western Australian students to take an active role in Reconciliation in their school and wider community. For more information on criteria, guidelines, prizes and closing dates, visit the PALS website
- Reconciliation sponsorship - the State Government each year offers sponsorship for activities that recognise the relationship between the original inhabitants of the State and the people who have made this country their home over the past 200 years. These small sponsorships – for amounts of up to $3,000 - are aimed at small, community-based projects driven by local groups in Western Australia. This year's grants have closed.
- GrantsLINK - The Department of Transport and Regional Services maintains a comprehensive GrantsLINK website that helps people find funding under a variety of Australian grant programs.
