FUNERAL ASSISTANCE GRANTS

As part of its commitment to the Aboriginal people of NSW and to fulfill its legislative commitments to provide community benefits to members of Local Aboriginal Land Councils and the wider Aboriginal community, the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council offers land council members, and Aboriginal people resident in New South Wales the ability to seek limited financial grants under a Funeral Benefits Scheme.

NSWALC has also determined that any NSW Aboriginal person who was not a member of a Funeral Fund is entitled to a funeral grant of up to $1000 to assist with covering the funeral costs.

Grants are paid directly to funeral service providers under this community benefits scheme.

This grant scheme is operated under strict criteria.

Confirmation of Aboriginality to the Ngambri LALC must be provided.
Application forms for assistance are available at the Ngambri Local Aboriginal Land Council and must be directed to the CEO on the number listed on this website.
