Disability Employment Expos Grant Opportunity
The Disability Employment expos will provide people with disability with high support needs, and their families and carers, with information on a range of employment pathways and available supports. The program was announced as part of the Government’s 2023–24 Budget.
$1.44 million is available from 2023–24 to 2024–25 for the expos.
The grant opportunity is open to a single provider or consortium who can deliver up to 8 expos nationally, including one virtual expo.
The overarching outcomes intended for this grant are for people with high support needs because of their disability, and their families, to have:
- a better understanding of the various pathways to employment, and the role that employment related supports and services can play
- an opportunity to connect with local employers, including mainstream employers, who may be open to hiring people with disability, including those with high support needs.
