Aboriginal Development Commission
The Aboriginal Development Commission was established in July 1980 to further the 'economic development of Aboriginals'. Its role was to assist Aboriginal communities and groups to acquire land, engage in business enterprises, obtain finance for housing and other personal needs, and to provide such finance. In South Australia the commission had offices in Adelaide and Ceduna.
Commission records held by the Archives contain information relating to loans, grants, aid, health, administrative practices, finance, sporting amenities, advertising, housing and land.
