Waiting for the ILC funding round to come to your state could be a very bad move. 

The NDIA have now confirmed that the first ILC funding round will include not just an ACT pilot but significant funding for National programs. The NDIA want nationally scalable approaches: ideas, frameworks and strategies that have the potential to go national. Many of the best ideas will emerge early and if you are not in the program when it starts, you may get gazumped by an intensely competitive ILC field.

This workshop will assist organisations prepare for the ILC funding opportunity with a focus on:

  • Opportunities the ILC offers and understanding what are the NDIA after
  • Developing a staged ILC framework that offers national scalability
  • Maximising the success of grant applications over the 3 year roll out
  • One last opportunity to identify potential local partners for local presence and diversity
