Twenty-two grants totalling close to $3 million have been awarded to organisations by the NDIA to make the ACT more accessible and inclusive of people with disability.
Two local service providers will share in $17.6 million of funding to deliver Local Area Coordination (LAC) and Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) services in the ACT to support the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
