The Connecting to Country program provides grants of up to $25,000 to support the sharing of knowledge between generations, to preserve culture and strengthen communities.

The program intends to improve understanding of country, ancestry, and kinship, in addition to promoting positive mental health, wellbeing, and resilience through community-led cultural healing projects.

The grants program forms part of the State Government's Commitment to Aboriginal Youth Wellbeing, a comprehensive response to the State Coroner's Inquest into the deaths of 13 children and young people in the Kimberley, and Learnings from the Message Stick report into Aboriginal youth suicide.

Eligible applicants can use the grants to help cover the costs for: 

  • travel expenses;
  • equipment hire;
  • specialist services;
  • documentation; or
  • any other costs associated with the project.

Applications for the grants close at 4pm on 8 December 2022, for activities starting after 1 May 2023.
