All services that Ingkerreke Outstations Resource Services delivers to outstations are funded by grants from the Northern Territory Government. Ingkerreke currently receives grants for the following:
Housing | Municipal & Essential Services | Infrastructure Projects
The allocation of funds for housing maintenance and municipal and essential services is determined by the number of outstations covered by the grant and the number of residential dwellings on each of these. In providing funding for these services, the government aims to improve the living conditions of Indigenous people. To ensure that the funding is used for this purpose, strict guidelines are issued that describe precisely what each grant can be spent on. Ingkerreke is required to report to the Government on a six-monthly basis, detailing the actual expenditure against each grant. An audit is also carried out at the end of each financial year to ensure that the Corporation has been compliant.
Ingkerreke is skilled at accessing and managing grant funding. As such, Ingkerreke has been able to achieve other priorities for outstation residents through accessing ABA funding and Homelands Extra funding. In addition, Ingkerreke has delivered projects for Central Land Council utilising leasing and other funds. Ingkerreke takes pride in administering grants in full compliance with the conditions of the funding agreements, while also endeavouring to provide the best possible outcomes to the residents of the outstations that we support.
