Two Indigenous programs in Wellington will benefit from funding as part of the Federal Government’s Indigenous Advancement Strategy.

Local MP Darren Chester said Ramahyuck District Aboriginal Corporation would receive over $400,000 in funding to deliver the programs.

“These programs are focussed on supporting the education and wellbeing of Indigenous children in our community,” Mr Chester said.

“The funding will support Ramahyuck to deliver successful early childhood, school, training and safety and wellbeing services.”

Two programs to receive funding include:

  • Wanjana Lidj Yarning about Families; Playing with Families and Koori Learning Hub Program – $138,841
  • Gippsland Children and Schooling Project – $262,641

 

Mr Chester said the funding also supported local jobs in Wellington.

“Providing financial support for these programs ensures that the organisations can support the communities and also their staff,” Mr Chester said.

“These projects will continue to support the Indigenous community and improve early outcomes for Indigenous children in Gippsland.”

Five programs in Gippsland received funding under the Federal Government’s Indigenous Advancement Strategy.
