Sample NTO duty statement

Legal assistance
Publication date

The department has developed a sample duty statement to assist in the preparation of your application for the Native Title Officer Funding Scheme.

The duty statement document is indicative only. Grant applicants must design a duty statement that reflects the needs of their organisation and its members. The specific duties proposed for the native title officer must be added to your application for funding. If your application is successful, you will need to report against the duties at the end of the funding period.
