Current and Future Funding Opportunities

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.

The NDIA will announce information about funding opportunities on the NDIS website and here in the ILC Toolkit.

To find out more information about ILC and future funding opportunities, subscribe to the ILC mailing list at the bottom of this page.

You can read more about the new investment approach on the ILC Funding page.

The Employment Participation grant round will open in early 2019.
