ILSC funding and investment programs

The ILSC assists Indigenous people with the acquisition and management of land, salt water and fresh water so they can achieve economic, environmental, social and cultural benefits.

The ILSC has established an urgent assistance grant for Indigenous corporations whose property has been directly affected during the late 2019 / early 2020 bushfire season.

Grants of up to $20,000 are available to assist Indigenous corporations to immediately secure and clean-up damaged properties located in the Bushfire emergency regions (see map here).

The Program will also support Indigenous land management groups and contractors assisting the recovery efforts with much needed equipment.
