Our Country Our Future

The ILSC can provide a wide range of assistance to those proposing projects, from brokering and developing partnerships, to facilitating and coordinating support, to providing funding assistance.

What assistance is available through Our Country Our Future?

The table below sets out what outcomes should be achieved by and for Indigenous people over time as a result of ILSC funding and other assistance. This can be used as a broad guide to determine whether or not your project can benefit from what the ILSC offers, and whether or not it is aligned to what the ILSC is aiming to achieve.

This process ensures that the ILSC invests its funds as effectively as possible, delivering the highest potential benefits to Indigenous Australians.
