NDIA Information, Linkages and Capacity Building Grant applications now open

December 17, 2018

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has released its next round of Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Grants.

Full details of the grant are available on the Community Grants Hub.  

Up to $19.9 million (including GST) in total is available with applications for this round closing at 2.00pm (AEDT) on Friday 21 December 2018.

Seeking applications from Disabled Peoples and Families Organisations (DPFO), this Grant Round is the first of several initiatives to support organisations across Australia led by people with disability, for people with disability.

DPFOs are user-led organisations that:

  • actively demonstrate their commitment to the Social Model of disability, which seeks to remove barriers for people with disability so they can access mainstream services and live an ordinary life
  • are run/led by and for people with disability and/or their families
  • have a minimum 50 per cent of their board, staff, volunteers or members represented by people with a disability and/or their families.

Applications from ILC’s priority cohort group organisations are also sought.  To be eligible an organisation must have a minimum of 50 per cent representation of the cohort group on the board, staff, volunteers or members. ILC priority cohort groups for this funding round are:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex and Plus (LGBTQI+).

Organisations who do not identify as DPFOs or cohort groups will be able to apply for other future ILC funding in 2019.

As detailed in the Grant Guideline, this grant round:

  • Is for projects delivered in under 12 months
  • Prefers applications seeking a maximum grant application amount of $118,000.
  • Expects successful grants recipients to be announced in April 2019.

NDS continues to partner with CSIA, via our joint Inclusion Ready initiative, to help Queensland organisations and communities better understand the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) grants and how they can lead to great economic and social inclusion within Queensland communities.
