Appropriate activities may include any activities required to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the organisation’s region continue to receive the services that support their health needs.

Approved activities could include: the purchase of necessary equipment to ensure continuity of service delivery in emergency situations; targeted funding to respond to emergency physical, social and/or emotional health needs; and/or the purchase, repair or installation of equipment or infrastructure due to natural disaster or incident.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are:

 - to ensure continuity of primary health care services provided by IAHP funded organisations in unforeseen circumstances
