110 DEPARTMENT OF THE CHIEF MINISTER O TH ER IN FO R M A TI O N GRANTS Office of Youth Affairs Grants Program The Office of Youth Affairs (OYA) administers the Youth Grants Program. The Program aims to assist young Territorians to access a variety of youth initiated events, personal development programs and activities and is a very successful way of involving young people in the planning, staging and evaluating of activities which reflect their needs and interests. For the 2003-2004 financial year a total of $130 701 was allocated for grants. $89 301 was allocated for the Youth Grants Program and $41 400 for the provision of other youth-related activities. For 2003-2004 there were two categories of grants available: Drug and Alcohol Free Entertainment; and Youth Development/ Leadership. National Youth Week Programs or activities associated with National Youth Week (NYW) should occur during the week of the event and fit into one of the above grant categories, that is, Drug and Alcohol Free Entertainment (DAFE) or Youth Development/ Leadership (YDL). The interests of young people should be reflected in the event. In 2003-2004, $39 590 in Youth Grant funding was provided for DAFE and YDL activities held during NYW 2004. This allocation included $11 000 received from the Australian Government for activities held in the Northern Territory as part of NYW. Drug and Alcohol Free Entertainment This category is for an event or activity where there is no alcohol or drugs. The aim of this type of entertainment is to promote a healthy lifestyle with a drug and alcohol free message. In 2003-2004 grants totalling $46 495 were allocated to this category.
