Tangentyere Council is dependent on grants and receives no core funding. Grants are predominantly from the Australian and Northern Territory governments, with occasional grants received from the Alice Springs Town Council and various philanthropic bodies. Up to 100 different grants may be received in any one year, with the large majority of these being applied for, reported on regularly and acquitted according to program guidelines.
Tangentyere’s finances are audited each year by a registered accounting firm and have received an unqualified report for many years.
The exception to this are the five not for profit enterprises which operate on a fee for service / contractual basis.
The major organisations that fund, or have funded, the services and programs operated by Tangentyere Council are as follows:
