Tailored Assistance Employment Grants connect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with real and sustainable jobs. There are three streams of funding:
- Employment – support for job seekers to address barriers to recruitment and improve retention in the workplace, and support for employers to engage and retain job seekers into ongoing jobs, including post-placement support
- School-based traineeships – support for secondary students to gain work experience and prepare for post-school transition into further study or employment
- Cadetships – support for university students to receive paid work-placement opportunities during the course of their study.
Where funding is available, organisations will be able to apply for Tailored Assistance Employment Grants funding at any time.
Under the current process potential applicants are encouraged to discuss their proposal with their local NIAA Regional Network office before preparing an application. This can occur at any time.
An Application Kit and an online Application Form is available to support this funding process.
From 1 November 2019, the application process will change.
The TAEG Application Form will be removed from this website and replaced with a TAEG Initial Proposal Form.
After completing a proposal form, potential applicants must discuss their proposal with their local NIAA Regional Network before an application can commence.
A factsheet on Tailored Assistance Employment Grants is also available.
