Aboriginals Benefit Account (ABA) Grant Funding

ABA grant funding is now closed.

The ABA is a Special Account that benefits Aboriginal people living in the Northern Territory (NT) established under the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976. The ABA receives monies from the Commonwealth based on the value of royalties generated from mining on Aboriginal land in the NT.

A new Aboriginal-led corporate Commonwealth entity, the Northern Territory Aboriginal Investment Corporation (NTAIC), has been established to invest funding from the ABA. The ABA grants process previously managed by the National Indigenous Australians Agency is being replaced with a new payments process managed by the NTAIC. The NTAIC's new grants process is expected to open around March 2023. Advice on what the new process looks like and how people can apply will be published when available. For further information please visit NT Aboriginal Investment Corporation.

Please contact the ABA team on 1800 354 612 or aba@official.niaa.gov.au for all ABA related queries.
