About the fact sheet

The Australian Government recognises that there is a cultural change taking place in relationships between the mining industry and Indigenous communities, so it aims to continue to support and encourage. It aims that change through the Mining Industry/ Indigenous Communities Regional Partnership Program. The Working in Partnership Program as it is known was given $1.2 million funding over 4 years and is operated through the Department of Industry, Tourism & Resources.
