Current and future grant rounds

The NDIA is changing the approach to how Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) funding is invested. This will help ensure ILC builds the capacity of individuals and communities to be more inclusive and accessible.

2019 National Information Program (NIP) grant round

The National Information Program (NIP) is the first funding stream from the ILC investment strategy, which updates ILC investment to focus on a mix of funding models, scaleability of programs and increased evaluation to ensure ILC delivers on its purpose: more people with disability contributing to actively leading, shaping and influencing their community.

The NIP will increase the accessibility, quality and consistency of information about disability types, current services and support options available to people with a disability, carers and families.

There is up to $51 million available for the period FY2019-20 through to FY 2021-22 for the National Information Program.

Organisations will be able to apply for grants from $300,000, with no upper limit, across the period 2019 to 2022.

Information produced through the grant round will be shared by Local Area Coordinators and other networks within the Agency.

Submissions open 9.00am (AEDT) 5 April 2019 and close 11.00pm (AEST) 10 May 2019.

More information about making a submission and guidelines can be found at the DSS Community Grants Hub website (external) (External website).
