In 2021 NSWALC reviewed and evaluated the former State Wide Grants program and replaced it with NSWALC Regional Events Grants. The main changes being the emphasis from events of statewide significance to events of regional significance for Aboriginal peoples in NSW. Additionally, the maximum grant available is now capped at $25,000.
The purpose of the NSWALC Regional Event Grants program is to provide grants for organisations and events that have Aboriginal participation and are of regional significance for Aboriginal peoples in NSW.
The events chosen must support and promote Aboriginal culture and/or sporting achievement. Activities that do not meet these purposes will not be funded under the Regional Event Grants component.
