Aboriginals Benefit Account (ABA) Grant Funding


The National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) was established on 1 July 2019. Prior to this the functions of the Agency were delivered by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C). We are currently working through this transition and some content is yet to be transferred between websites. For the latest news from NIAA visit niaa.gov.au.


The funding round is NOW OPEN. This round will close on Friday 23 August 2019

ABA grant funding or simply ABA is funding that is available through funding rounds.

  • ABA grants:
  • Support one-off projects
  • Projects are specifically for the benefit of Aboriginal people in the NT
  • Funding will not be applied to projects that should be funded by other sources of government funding
  • Preference is for delivery by NT based Indigenous applicants.
