Quick response recovery grants launched for Indigenous groups
Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation disaster recovery grants of up to $20,000 from the Indigenous organisations are now available for 2024, with the grant scheme now covering all natural disasters.
The grants are aimed at supporting communities with urgent clean-up works to ensure properties are safe and have the necessary equipment for immediate recovery with several organisations in the Kimberley receiving grants after the flooding event earlier this year.
ILSC Group chief executive Joe Morrison said he was proud of the ILSC’s ability to provide much-needed support for Indigenous organisations recovering from catastrophic flooding in the last several months.
“The ILSC recognises that bushfires, storm damage and floods are increasing each year due to the rise of climate change,” he said.
“These grants provide a streamlined application and approval process, ensuring Indigenous corporations have more time to focus on immediate recovery following disasters.
“We want to be prepared and ensure we are ready to support our communities. This funding will quickly help Indigenous organisations get back on their feet and recover as necessary.”
Further information on applying for Disaster Recovery Quick Response Grants can be found on the ILSC website.
