14 new Indigenous-led research projects to share $2.6 million in funding

Indigenous-led research grants totalling $2.6 million were announced today by the Minister for Indigenous Australians, the Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP.

Fourteen projects, funded under the AIATSIS Indigenous Research Exchange grants program, will explore a variety of topics – including the role of cultural law for improved resilience from natural disaster, better sexual health education, support for mental health and suicide prevention measures, child welfare policy reforms, better mechanisms for engagement between communities and government on social issues.

The Indigenous Research Exchange aims to improve outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by ensuring more involvement and agency in research projects.
