A solution to improve data on Aboriginal development

The limited information about the number and conditions of Aboriginal people living in particular areas frustrates everyone.  Services do not know how many potential clients they are missing.  Aboriginal organisations cdo not have the information they need for advocacy. The media doesn’t have any real facts so non-Indigenous Australians do not have stereotypes challenged. It is gratifying that the Midwest Aboriginal Organisations Alliance and the regional offices of Department of Indigenous Affairs and the Indigenous Coordination Council support the concept of an Yamaji Social and Demographic Information System.  With these groups behind us, Ann is seeking funds to scope the acceptability and feasibility of establishing a system of collecting information from Aboriginal households. More information on the YSDIS project page.

Anyone have advice on where Ann should seek financial support?
