Funding is allocated through: the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS), National Partnership Agreements, Special Accounts and Special Appropriations.

Grant funding is also available through Indigenous-specific and mainstream programs delivered by other agencies.

Funding under the IEF is no longer available. Potential applicants can speak with their local NIAA office to discuss alternative options.
Collection of personal information for administering grants
NIAA collects personal information as part of its delivery of grant programs. This information may be used to assess and process grant applications, to administer grant agreements, for compliance and detection of fraud, or for research and analysis.
For the same purposes, we may disclose personal information to those involved in the assessment of applications, contractors of the Commonwealth, Parliament and other government agencies. We may also use de-identified information for the purposes of reporting to other agencies, Parliament and the public.
Details about the information we collect and who it may be disclosed to will be available in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines for each funding opportunity.
The Agency will not provide the information collected from you to anyone else outside the Agency (other than the parties listed in the Grant Opportunity Guidelines), unless you have given consent for us to do this, or we are authorised or required to do so by law.
