1 July 2022 

The NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) announces a new Sponsorship Program, open from today, Friday July 1st, 2022.

NSWALC Chairperson Danny Chapman says the new Program is designed to support eligible organisations’ events or activities in communities.

“The Councillors and I understand the importance of developing meaningful relationships within our communities and with our stakeholders.

This Program is an excellent way to support activities that reflect the NSWALC’s values of being culturally strong and serving our people, collaborating with integrity, accountability and respect,” he said.

The Sponsorship Program has been established under Section 106(7) of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 (NSW) (ALRA).

For a sponsorship to be considered, the aims and goals must be clearly set out in the application and will be reviewed against NSWALC’s objectives and Strategic Plan. 

NSWALC Sponsorship is available all year round. Enquiries are welcome.

Please see below for information on eligibility.
