Public Awareness grants are made to selected activities that are capable of reaching a significant audience of non-Indigenous people. The program provides supplementary funding, and is not intended to finance the whole project. Its broad aims are:
- to promote to the wider community an understanding of, and respect for, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures
- to encourage in the wider community the development of positive attitudes towards Indigenous Australians
- to inform the wider community about contemporary issues that affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and communities.
