State delegates at the FATSIL Governing Committee Meeting in Canberra addressed the preparation of a strategic plan and guidelines for future funding policy. Also on the agenda for the May meeting were the ATSILIP funding proposals for the 1998/99 financial year, for which recommendations and endorsements were prepared, and a statement for ATSIC relating to the allocation of funds for new language initiatives.

 

The statement, addressed to ATSIC Chairperson Gatjil Djerrkura, supports the position that FATSIL must be involved with ATSIC at all levels of funding to identify priority areas, and to ens are the most effective use of the additional $9 million allocated to language in response to the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from their Families.
