Treaty Community Engagement Program

What is the Treaty Community Engagement Program?

The Treaty Community Engagement Program aims to support Traditional Owner groups and other Aboriginal organisations and business to:

  • engage with Victorian Aboriginal communities and non-Aboriginal Victorians on key matters relating to the treaty process
  • gain practical insights into how self-determination and treaty can strengthen Victorian Aboriginal communities
  • build capacity amongst Traditional Owners and other Victorian Aboriginal groups in preparation for the next phase of the treaty process

What types of projects might be funded? 

Category 1: Treaty Circle Grants (Up to $10,000 plus GST)

Treaty Circle Grants are intended to support smaller consultations on the treaty process (Treaty Circles). This may include consultations with Traditional Owner groups, Aboriginal people living in a particular area, a clan or family group, Elders, young people, women and Aboriginal people working in a specific field, such as health or education.

Category 2: Treaty Engagement Grants (Up to $100,000 plus GST)

Treaty Engagement Grants are intended to support in-depth, ongoing engagement and research projects relating to self-determination and/or the treaty process. This may include in-depth community engagement at a significant scale, such as consulting on what treaty means to a large Aboriginal group, such as a Traditional Owner group or the Aboriginal community of a particular town or region.
