Northern Territory Remote Aboriginal Investment

The National Partnership on Northern Territory Remote Aboriginal Investment (NTRAI) is an agreement between the Australian and Northern Territory (NT) Governments. It supports service delivery for Aboriginal people living in remote areas of the NT. 

While the NTRAI is a standalone agreement, in practice it is a continuation of the investment that commenced following the Northern Territory National Emergency Response Act 2007 and subsequent arrangements including the National Partnership Agreement on Stronger Futures in the Northern Territory.  

The NTRAI was due to end in 2022. An End of Term Review of NTRAI assessing its effectiveness, efficiency and appropriateness was published on 1 February 2022. Subsequently, the Australian and NT Governments signed an extension to the existing funding arrangement, providing an additional $173.2 million until 30 June 2024. 

A Joint Steering Committee (JSC) provides oversight for all aspects of NTRAI. The JSC includes representatives from the: 

  • Australian Government  
  • NT Government 
  • Aboriginal Peak Organisations Northern Territory (APO NT).
