The Stolen Generations Reparations Scheme provides ex-gratia payments to living Stolen Generations survivors who were removed by, committed to, or otherwise came into the care of the New South Wales Aborigines Protection or Welfare Boards under the Aborigines Protection Act 1909, up until the Act was repealed on 20 March 1969.
The Funeral Assistance Fund provides one-off payments to individuals who meet the eligibility requirements above and who were living on 2 December 2016 (the date that the NSW Government announced the establishment of the Funeral Assistance Fund). Eligible Stolen Generations survivors can choose to receive the Funeral Assistance payment at the same time as their Reparations Payment or to defer the payment and nominate a person to receive the payment at the point it is required.
The Stolen Generations Reparations Scheme will run for 5 years, commencing 1 July 2017.
