Fourteen Queensland organisations have been given the green light on projects that will lay the foundation for building more inclusive communities for people with disability.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is funding organisations to deliver Information, Linkages and Capacity building (ILC) activities across communities through their ILC grants program.

Minister for Disability Services Coralee O’Rourke congratulated the successful Queensland organisations and encouraged other organisations to consider opportunities that might arise as the ILC grants program continues in 2019.

“These grants are about making sure people with disability are connected with their communities, and they form an important part of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS),” she said.

“I am delighted that these local organisations will be bringing their experience and commitment to Queenslanders with disability to this part of the scheme.

“I encourage other organisations to consider any existing or potential work which is promoting social and economic inclusion for their clients, staff or people in the community, and think about applying for a grant.”

“We want to ensure that Queensland is a place where people with disability have equal access to opportunities and can contribute to, and participate in, all that the state has to offer.”

The ILC program will include grant rounds for four programs including National Information; Individual Capacity Building; Mainstream Capacity Building and Economic and Community Participation.

This grant round was open to organisations that identify as a Disabled Peoples and Families Organisation and help build the foundation for the Individual Capacity Building program.

The Palaszczuk Government is supporting free workshops to help organisations and businesses understand the ILC strategy and grants program.
