Commonwealth removal of caveats from Indigenous Grant-funded Property

The former Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) and its predecessor organisations previously provided grants to Indigenous organisations for the purchase of property on freehold land (grant-funded property). These grant-funded properties were often protected by the Commonwealth through registration of a caveat on the land title and through terms and conditions imposed on the grant (usually in the form of a Purposes Agreement or Deed).


We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
