2018 Disabled People and Families Organisations (DPFO) grant round

The DPFO grant round has committed $15.5 Million (GST Incl.) to 114 organisations and 13 cohort group organisations to deliver one year projects from July 2019.

These grants will strengthen the foundations of the DPFO sector in time for the new approach for ILC grants as outlined in the ILC Investment Strategy, when we will see four nationally scalable programs that will deliver measurable outcomes for people with disability.

The recipients of the DPFO Grant Round can be found below.

2018 Rural and Remote Grant Round

The 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.
