The Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation, or ALPA, was established in 1972 as a co-operative of community stores in Arnhem Land. Today ALPA has grown to be the largest Aboriginal Corporation in Australia and operates in 27 remote locations across the NT and Queensland. With a vision of “unity through enterprise” ALPA now contributes to the development of local economies and indigenous business where they operate. Activities include: accommodation and hospitality in partnership with local families, training and employment services through the CDP program, construction, mechanical workshops and homelands service delivery.
ALPA’s goal is to provide quality services with a commitment to local employment and training and we have seen our overall staff grow to 1,180 employees of which just over 85% are indigenous. We aim to enhance social and economic development wherever we operate, while continuing to embrace our cultural heritage.
ALPA is governed by an Aboriginal Board of Directors made up of representatives from its member communities, embracing the highest standards of corporate governance.The Board governs the corporations’ vision, direction, policy, goals and objectives.
ALPA is financially independent and is not reliant on external funding or subsidies. ALPA self-funds business development to increase employment and improve services to the community.
ALPA is a benevolent corporation, funds are returned to the community in accordance with ALPA’s constitution to benefit its member communities. ALPA provides a diverse range of financial assistance for health and nutrition programs, ceremonies, education, medical escorts and community events.
