Boost for the Yorta Yorta

By Riverine Herald

THE Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation in Barmah will receive almost $1.5 million for capital works and upgrades to community facilities.

YYNAC was established to represent the members of the family groups who are descendants of the original ancestors of the Yorta Yorta peoples.

The corporation makes decisions and acts on any matters of significance to the Yorta Yorta and the protection of their country.

The funding will be used to refurbish an existing building in Barmah to accommodate the corporation’s growing workforce.

The refurbishment will include an archive facility, and provide a safe work and interactive space.
