MEP was established in mid-2013 as a joint venture between Marngarr Resource Centre Aboriginal Corporation and Laynhapuy Homelands Aboriginal Corporation to provide the then-named Remote Jobs and Communities Program (RJCP), across the Northeast Arnhem Land Region. MEP then delivered the Community Development Program (CDP) until June 2019. We have a strong Board of Yolngu and Balanda Leaders from across the region.
