Where we are up to 

Programs are ongoing and have completed first twelve months of delivery. COVID-19 restrictions have suspended face to face activities with Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations (ACCOs) adapting to remote activities where appropriate.


The Frontline grants program commenced in 2005. The grants provide communities with opportunities to deliver community-based initiatives that engage Aboriginal children and young people at risk of contact with the criminal justice system in pro-social and physically healthy activities. CIP commenced in 2002. The grants provide communities with opportunities to develop pilot initiatives and undertake research that will reduce negative contact between the community and the criminal justice system. The Frontline and CIP grants programs are offered every second year to support programs that are initiated by the Aboriginal community who play leading roles in the program development and delivery of initiatives to Aboriginal Victorians.
