First Mortgage and Community Infrastructure Program

The First Mortgage and Community Infrastructure Program aims to strengthen the economic capacity and sustainability of Aboriginal organisations to move towards self-determination.

Not-for-profit groups
Open, closing in 87 days

Aboriginal organisations who own property where the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs holds a first mortgage, can apply to have the first mortgage removed.

This staged Program will ensure Aboriginal organisations have full control of their assets and have the autonomy to grow and plan for the future. It will enable more Aboriginal organisations to meet social determinants such as education, health and housing. It will also improve the ability of Aboriginal organisations to respond to the ongoing and changing demands in social, economic, and cultural environments.
