The Indigenous Justice Program funds projects that seek to reduce contact of Indigenous Australians with the criminal justice system. These projects help make communities safer by reducing offending, victimisation and incarceration of Indigenous people.
Program applications are currently being assessed. We will advise applicants of our decision in May 2013.
The program guidelines set out the principles and obligations governing the management of the program.
The service delivery standards:
- establish our expectations of quality justice services to be delivered to Indigenous people
- provide a guide to service providers
- provide a reference document for the Indigenous community and other key stakeholders.
