Local community campaigns to promote better Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health



The Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing, has made funding available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations throughout Australia for developing and implementing local initiatives and programs to promote messages around chronic disease prevention and healthy lifestyle choices.

The Local community campaigns grant funding will provide funding for communities who wish to implement a Local community campaign in their area. The Department has engaged communications consultants Cox Inall Ridgeway to provide national support to communities, and to assist applicants with the development and submission of grant applications.

Applicants are encouraged from a wide range of community organisations and do not have to have a prior funding relationship established with the Department. Organisations wishing to apply must be incorporated to be eligible for funding.

The needs of communities vary and the amounts of funding provided will be flexible in addressing these different needs. The Australian Government is providing up to $17 million in funding for Local Community Campaigns from 2011 - 2013.
