A total of $132,000 was recently awarded in funding towards innovative Indigenous health projects in Western Australia (WA).
Through the new Aboriginal community innovation grants funding program run by the Department of Health WA, grants of up to $5000 were given to 32 not-for-profit organisations to develop their projects.
Aboriginal Health Director, Jenni Collard, said the quality, diversity and creativity of the applications were impressive:
'The projects funded demonstrate leading thinking on Aboriginal health and a commitment to engaging with Aboriginal communities in developing innovative projects.
'Aboriginal health is everyone's business, and these grants underline the importance of involving the broader community in designing creative solutions to improve Aboriginal health outcomes.
'The high number of applications also highlights that these grants fill a need amongst not-for-profit organisations unable to access other grants.'
The grants will fund a diverse range of health programs. Grant recipients include:
