Funding of more than $100,000 for Indigenous land-based projects. The ILC wants to hear from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups and potential co-investors. We have the expertise and the networks to help Indigenous people realise their plans.
The ILC wants to partner with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and/or co-investors who can help Indigenous people benefit from their land.

We may fund projects directly, work with potential co-investors, enter into a formal commercial partnership or become an owner-operator of an enterprise through a subsidiary. The ILC will work with the ideas that have the greatest potential – those that are viable and sustainable – to help bring them to fruition.
