National Indigenous Reform Agreement (Closing the Gap)



Friday, 4 February 2011

The National Indigenous Reform Agreement (NIRA) is one of six National Agreements.

The NIRA frames the task of Closing the Gap in Indigenous disadvantage. It sets out the objectives, outcomes, outputs, performance indicators and performance benchmarks agreed by COAG. It also provides links to those National Agreements and National Partnership agreements across COAG which include elements aimed at Closing the Gap in Indigenous disadvantage.

The NIRA is a schedule to the Intergovernmental Agreement on Federal Financial Relations (part of Schedule F: National Agreements), which came into effect on 1 January 2009. The NIRA was revised in February 2011.
