    $150,000 for reconciliation in Western Australia

    27/03/2008 12:00 AM

    Indigenous Affairs Minister Michelle Roberts has today called for nominations for the 2008 Reconciliation Grants.


    This year, a total $150,000 is available for projects worth up to $20,000.


    “Reconciliation grants provide an opportunity for individuals and organisations to actively find ways to build stronger relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous people,” Mrs Roberts said.


    The Minister said this year’s grants would focus on projects that demonstrated significant leadership in reconciliation and had a strong symbolic value.


    “Project proposals must demonstrate the potential to create greater respect between indigenous and non-indigenous people,” she said.


    Grant applications close on Monday, April 14.
