The Australian Government is inviting organisations using an open competitive process to apply to deliver activities under the Community Inclusion and Capacity Development (CICD) – Implementing Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) – ILC Jurisdictional Based Grants in New South Wales (NSW), South Australia (SA) and Australian Capital Territory (ACT) from July 2018 to June 2020.

ILC is all about inclusion of people with disability. It is about creating connections between people with disability and their communities. One way the NDIA wants to help create those connections is through providing grants to organisations.

The objective of the ILC Jurisdictional Based Grants – NSW-SA-ACT funding round is to facilitate the roll out of ILC in these jurisdictions. This objective will be achieved by funding organisations to implement activities that deliver outcomes for people with disability, their families and carers in each of the following four Activity Areas of the ILC Policy:

  • Information, linkages and referrals
  • Capacity building for mainstream services
  • Community awareness and capacity building
  • Individual capacity building.

The NDIA encourages applications from organisations for proven and/or innovative models of delivery across all Activity Areas that increase the independence, social and community participation of people with a disability. The activities funded will meet identified needs and interests of people with disability, and will reflect a contemporary, positive and progressive approach to inclusion.
