Maintenance of Indigenous Languages and Records program


Maintenance of Indigenous Languages and Records program

The Maintenance of Indigenous Languages and Records (MILR) program assists the maintenance, transmission and revival of Indigenous languages. It aims to address the erosion and loss of Australia’s estimated 250 Indigenous languages by providing funding to support community based activities by language groups, language research and the development and coordination of language resources and training.


The MILR program received 90 applications seeking approximately $14.4 million in funding against the 2011-12 budget of $9.6 million. A total of 67 activities are being supported in 2011-12, including 10 multi-year activities that were approved in previous funding rounds.
The activities approved for funding have been assessed by the Office for the Arts in accordance with the MILR program guidelines and assessment criteria.
