The objective of this Information Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) grant round is to strengthen and build the organisational capacity of DPFOs across Australia and to deliver individual capacity building activities for people with disability. This grant round is an open, non-competitive round, which targets DPFOs and organisations led by ILC Priority cohorts. The grant round invites applications that contain two components:

  • Component 1: Organisational Capacity Building, which are activities that build the organisational capacity, and
  • Component 2: Individual Capacity Building, which are activities that build the capacity of people with disability. Individual capacity building activities that feature peer support are encouraged, however other individual capacity building activities are also eligible.
