Distribution Policy

In line with its commitment to Working For ALL Larrakia, the Larrakia Development Corporation’s Distribution Policy was introduced in 2006, devoting a proportion of the Corporation’s profits to Larrakia for the payment of funeral funds, scholarships, first home buyers, business start up costs, utility service costs for senior Larrakia and many other services. Funding is not reliant on any government, donor, or other third party assistance, but through sustained commercial enterprise.

Currently, the following categories are available:

Distribution Policy

Funeral Expenses

This is a one off payment to assist Larrakia families towards the cost of funerals. Up to a maximum of $5000 is available per funeral, which will be paid directly to the nominated funeral service provider. Applications can be made to the LDC office by filling out the required form (with supporting documentation), and must confirm the identity of the deceased individual, and their relationship to a Larrakia family. Applications are assessed on a case by case basis, subject to further terms and conditions.

Over 60s Fund

People of Larrakia decent, over 60 years of age, may make an application up to a maximum of $250 per quarter during the calendar year, to assist with the following living expenses:

  • Council rates
  • Phone/mobile bills
  • Electricity/sewage/water bills, and
  • MVR registration

To apply for the fund, application forms must be submitted with the original invoice(s), which must be registered in the name of the Larrakia applicant. Approved applications will then be paid directly to the service provider by the LDC.

Applicants may apply for reimbursements, subject to receipt of an application form and receipt(s) confirming that the original invoice, registered in the name of the Larrakia applicant, has been paid by the applicant.

Applications may also be submitted for couples, by non-Larrakia spouses in an existing marriage/de facto relationship with a Larrakia person who is over 60 years of age, subject to the above terms and conditions. Following initial approval, if the Larrakia partner becomes deceased, the non-Larrakia spouse may continue to submit applications if they are also over 60 years of age at the time.

Subscription entertainment services such as FOXTEL are not included, regardless of whether or not such entertainment services are incorporated as a bundle with other applicable bills.

Unused funds from previous quarters do not accrue.

Conditions of Payment

  • All payments are subject to the approval of the Larrakia Development Corporation CEO and/or Board.

Larrakia Development Corporation Scholarship Program

Applications for 2017 are now closed.

Tertiary education scholarship 2017

The Larrakia Development Corporation Scholarship Program (LDCSP) offers scholarship opportunities to Larrakia students of all ages who are studying fulltime degrees at a tertiary level.

The LDCSP is funded in partnership with INPEX Corporation, pursuant to the objectives of the 2009 LDC/INPEX Memorandum of Understanding and is available to Larrakia students through the LDC Distribution Policy.

The LDCSP supports scholarships for Larrakia students to attend Australian universities to study degrees in the field of their choice.

Through the LDC Distribution Policy the LDCSP achieves a practical outcome for Larrakia students and their families, by focusing on a corner stone of the Larrakia Development Trust; helping Larrakia people and families close the gap on educational outcomes.

In addition to helping Larrakia tertiary students achieve their educational goals, the LDCSP supports the development of a pool of positive role models and future leaders, to inspire other Larrakia students and demonstrate the successes that can be achieved through educational attainment.

The LDCSP is periodically reviewed and it is hoped that scholarships or other forms of financial assistance will become available to Larrakia students across all year and educational levels in the near future. Applications for 2017 scholarships must be received by the LDC by 31 December 2016.

Successful applicants will be notified in writing prior to the commencement of the 2017 academic year.

If you have any questions about the Larrakia Development Corporation Scholarship Program or need help completing an application, please contact the LDC on (08) 8947 3455 or email reception@larrakia.com.au

Applications and supporting documents can be sent by post, or email (our preferred method is email). You will be notified when your application is received.
