Relief grants now available for for flood-hit Indigenous corporations in Northern Territory and Queensland

Giovanni Torre -

The Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation's 2023 Emergency Response Grants Program, which has provided financial relief to flood-affected Indigenous corporations in the Kimberley, is now available for Indigenous corporations in Queensland and the Northern Territory who have suffered the effects of recent flooding.

The Top End has been ravaged by heavy rains, causing severe flooding in many communities.

The Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC) 2023 Emergency Response Grants Program provides a grant of up to $20,000 to assist Indigenous corporations whose property has been directly affected by the floods, or Indigenous groups who are assisting the

immediate recovery and clean-up efforts on Indigenous lands.

ILSC Group chief executive Joe Morrison said the ILSC was monitoring the situation across the Northern Territory and Queensland extremely closely and is thinking of the impacted communities.

"This year, we have witnessed floods devastate large parts of the Top End of Australia," said Mr Morrison.

"The footage that we saw come out of the Kimberley region was horrific, and now we are seeing similar devastation impact communities across the NT and Queensland.

"We want to band together with the impacted communities and remind flood-affected Indigenous corporations that our 2023 Emergency Response Grants Program is available to provide some relief."

Details on how to apply for funding under the 2023 Emergency Response Grants Program can be found online.
