Information on Aboriginal Funeral Grants
New processes for Aboriginal people in NSW seeking financial support
for funeral services
As of July 1 2011, the NSW Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC) and Aboriginal Affairs NSW (AANSW) have pooled funeral assistance funding, which will now be administered by the NSWALC. Aboriginal people will now be able to make a single application for financial assistance, depending on eligibility and available funds. All applications must be approved by NSWALC in order to receive final payment. NSWALC will process all applications using the existing NSWALC application form, which may be downloaded at www.alc.org.au.
For further information, please contact the NSWALC Funeral Grants
Hotline on (02) 9689 4470 or Free-call 1800 647 487.
