Self-Determination Fund

Building capacity, wealth and prosperity for current and future generations.

As part of the journey towards Treaty in Victoria, the Assembly wants to establish a Self-Determination Fund — a financial resource that will enable Traditional Owners to enter Treaty negotiations with the State Government on a more level playing field, and empower First Peoples to build capacity, wealth, and prosperity for current and future generations.

To find out more about the Self-Determination Fund, check out our information sheet below.
