Native Title Party Capacity Building Program 2024

Applications are now open for the native title party Capacity Building Program.
Last updated:

The Department of Planning Lands and Heritage (Department) recognises that native title parties across Western Australia have varying levels of capacity. This directly impacts the ability for native title parties to engage with members, industry, Government, and other stakeholders on heritage related matters.

The native title party Capacity Building Program will ensure native title parties are resourced to provide heritage services and respond to the engagement, consultation and service delivery needs of industry and Government. This includes improving the capacity of native title parties to participate in the statutory processes under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972.

Capacity Building Program Funding

The State Government has committed $8 million per year to the Capacity Building Program for the duration of June 2024 to June 2027. Throughout this period, bi-annual payments of $90,000 are available to eligible native title parties.

Acknowledging the immediate need for funding, the first payment for successful applicants who submit before the 24 May 2024 will be $180,000 with subsequent bi-annual payments of $90,000. Applications received after 24 May 2024 will only be eligible for the bi-annual payments of $90,000.

Applications open on 6 May 2024.
