The Indigenous Languages Program

Applications for the 2023 Indigenous Languages Grants program are open, with grants of up to $10,000 available for Queensland-based initiatives that support the preservation of First Nations languages.

Funding for community-led language projects promises to revitalise an important part of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural identity.

From musicals celebrating stories and songs from the Torres Strait to signage and educational resources in South-East Queensland, previous Queensland Government-supported language projects continue to strengthen culture and communities.

A range of cultural activities may be eligible for an Indigenous Languages Grant, including art, drama, music and film projects, Yarning Circles, audio recordings, workshops, signage, books, posters and brochures.

The grants are proudly co-funded by the Department of Treaty, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Communities and the Arts and the Department of Education.

Applications close on Monday 12 June 2023. More information, including how to apply, is available at
