2018 ILC Rural and Remote Grant Round

The ILC Rural and Remote Grant Round has committed $9,337,975.90 (GST Incl.) to 13 organisations to deliver one or two year projects from July 2018.

The grants help organisations and community groups to provide place-based and culturally specific information, resources and supports, unique to the needs of people with disability living in remote communities.

This grant funding represents a significant investment by the NDIS in driving improved access and culturally appropriate services and opportunities for people with disability, including people without an NDIS plan, to be independent and to participate in social and community life.
