Mapping the Indigenous Program and Funding Maze


This report, published by an independent think tank, maps the number of government and non-government Indigenous programs and potential level of duplication across jurisdictions in Australia. It identifies that many programs are implemented due to a perceived benefit rather than a rigorous assessment of effective program outcomes. The report estimates that $5.9 billion per year is spent on Indigenous programs across state and federal government and the non-government sector. It makes recommendations that funding must be delivered on the basis of need and achievement of outcomes.
