Elizabeth’s two NDIS superpowers are knowledge and passion. Disability is big part of Elizabeth’s family life as a sibling and grandmother, and it shows.
Elizabeth has over 20 years experience in public policy and leadership development, including management of disability and multicultural organisations. Since 2010, Elizabeth has contributed to NDIS design through multiple representations to Productivity Commission and Senate Inquiries. In 2012, she led a successful NDIS Practical Design Fund project, elements of which form key components of the current ILC model. Previously managing programs now in scope for ILC transition, Elizabeth’s depth of knowledge and expertise has enhanced the numerous transition-readiness workshops she facilitates.
Elizabeth McGarry explores the fine print behind the long awaited funding opportunity for what are generally known as user-led organisations: A $19.9 million funding round for the ILC program.
West Australia has just been given the opportunity to apply for $7 million worth of funding via an Expression Of Interest (EOI) process. As Elizabeth explores, this round looks very different from previous ILC funding opportunities.
Is ILC taking one step forward, only to go two steps back? Roland and Elizabeth explore the implications of the NDIA’s recent non-competitive, ‘invite only’ ILC Remote Grants.
With ILC still a work in progress, it is important to concentrate on what we do know. Elizabeth examines what we know for certain at this stage and how providers can get ILC ready.
147 projects have been funded under the most recent funding round for Jurisdictional and National ILC Grants.
The next Information, Linkages & Capacity Building funding round is set to open any day now. Successful grant writer Elizabeth McGarry explores the context of this next round and shares her tips for ILC success.
