Information, Linkages and Capacity Building – Social and Community Participation Grant Opportunity
The Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program provides information and capacity building supports for all people with disability, regardless of whether they are National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants. The ILC program also helps people with disability benefit from a more inclusive, accessible and connected Australia.
Funding of up to $50 million will be available over 2 years to deliver one-off, time-limited activities under the Social and Community Participation program to connect people with disability to supports and activities in their local community.
Eligible activities may include:
- support for community organisations to become more inclusive of people with disability, their families and carers and
- projects that improve or reshape community services and activities to meet the needs of people with disability.
This grant opportunity will assist providers and community groups to deliver tailored information, resources and supports, addressing the needs of all people with disability, their family and carers across Australia.
It is anticipated that successful funding recipients will be able to deliver grant activities via both face-to-face and online forums.
This grant opportunity will be released in the coming weeks and will be open for a period of up to 6 weeks.
