The EPP can provide resources to negotiate and draft the partnership organization`s activities, such as negotiating and developing an agreement between a regional First Nations organization, the Ministry of Culture or the ISC (if no agreement is reached) and to conduct all necessary consultations with the Communities. All partners must sign the partnership agreement. Through established partnerships, the EPP can support the development and implementation of measures defined as part of a joint action plan or an existing agreement with the Ministry of Education and the ISC. EPP funding supports the establishment of eligible partnerships and the promotion of partnerships in which partnerships meet the following criteria: the «partnership establishment» and «partnership» component supports two streams of partnership activities: once the partners have signed a partnership agreement and have concluded a common action plan or agreement already in place , the Regional First Nations Organization may submit a proposal to the ISC for funding for eligible activities as part of the EPP Partnership Assistance Flow. Roles and Responsibilities: All partners share a common interest and are responsible for identifying opportunities to support and participate in the activities of First Nations students.

The AFN supports the implementation of infrastructure projects and explains how the Australian government and countries will work together to carry out infrastructure projects for the benefit and well-being of Australians.
