The Australian Government is inviting applications in an open process to apply to deliver services under the Disability, Mental Health and Carer: National Disability Conference Initiative in 2019-2020  

The National Disability Conference Initiative provides grants to help people with disability to participate in nationally-focused disability-related conferences held in Australia. Grants will support eligible conference organisers to provide accessibility measures that will maximise the inclusion and participation of people of people with disability at their conference.

The National Disability Conference Initiative aims to:

  • Enable people with disability greater opportunities to participate in all areas of Australian life by assisting them and their carers with the costs of attending disability-related conferences that might otherwise be inaccessible to them.
  • Greater participation and inclusion of people with disability at nationally-focused, disability-related conferences in Australia.
