Indigenous Ranger Grants Program - Discussion Paper

The Northern Territory Government is implementing a new policy initiative - Protecting Country, Creating Jobs which seeks to support Indigenous Rangers to protect the environment and create jobs. This will be achieved through a capital grants program for Indigenous Ranger groups to help purchase essential items, with funding of $4.1 million over 2 years; and the establishment of a Land Management and Conservation Fund to improve conservation practices on Aboriginal land, with funding of $2 million per annum from 2017/18.

This Discussion Paper is intended to provide Indigenous Ranger groups with advice on the type of input that the Department is seeking.  The input should cover land and sea management problems, methods of addressing those problems and how the grants program could be structured to achieve such outcomes.

Submit your feedback.
