The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has announced that applications for the next round of ILC Jurisdictional Based Grants for NSW, South Australia and the ACT will open on 24 October 2017.

Applications will be accepted in any one of the four ILC Activity Areas:

  1. Information, linkages and referrals – Activities that provide people with disability and their families and carers with access to up-to-date, relevant and quality information and/or make sure they are linked into services and supports in the community that meet their needs;
  2. Capacity building for mainstream services – Activities that increase mainstream services’ knowledge and skills to meet the needs of people with disability;
  3. Community awareness and capacity building – Activities that will help community activities and programs understand the needs of people with disability and have the skills and knowledge they need to be more inclusive;
  4. Individual capacity building – Activities that help people with disability to have the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to set and achieve their goals. People who do not have an NDIS plan will be prioritised in this area.

Organisations can apply for grants of up to two years. The grant round will close on 30 November 2017.

The NDIA will be holding the following information sessions in NSW to provide information on ILC and the Grants process.

  • Tuesday 10 October 2017 – Coffs Harbour
  • Wednesday 11 October 2017 – Sydney (Darling Harbour)
