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.

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