Small Grants Open More Opportunities for Reconciliation
The Palaszczuk Government has announced a new $100,000 funding initiative to help Queensland communities celebrate National Reconciliation Week (27 May – 3 June 2018).
State Member for Morayfield, Mark Ryan, said the 2018 Celebrating Reconciliation Small Grants Program provided local community groups with a great opportunity to embrace National Reconciliation Week with local events.
“The Celebrating Reconciliation Small Grants Program is Queensland’s first dedicated reconciliation grants program,” said Mr Ryan.
“Community organisations can apply for grants of up to $2,500 to help put together local celebrations.
“This year’s theme for National Reconciliation Week – Don’t Keep History a Mystery – encourages everyone to join the reconciliation journey by building respectful relationships, learning more about and growing broader acceptance of our shared history.”
Applications close Friday 13 April 2018.

National Reconciliation Week is a national campaign held each year from 27 May to 3 June, commemorating two significant milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey—the successful 1967 referendum and the 1992 High Court Mabo decision.
