The winners of the second round of National and Jurisdictional ILC grants have been announced at last, with a total of 147 projects funded over the next two years.
For the National grants, a little over $28 million has been awarded for 43 individual projects. Grants range in size from $173,000 to just under $2 million. Interestingly, just over a third of projects have nominated just one state as their initial coverage area:
Multiple jurisdictions: 7
All grants will focus on delivering against Key ILC Activity Area 1 – Provision of information, linkages and referrals. The average grant size for the 5 one year projects is $368,552. The average grant size for the 38 two year projects is $704,349.
Focus areas include:
Disability specific groups: 20
All people with disability: 9

Psychosocial Disability: 3
Gender specific: 1
Hard to reach communities: 1

The most exciting news is that at least half of these successful projects will be breaking new ground while the remainder are focussing on enhancing or expanding pre-existing initiatives. Online platforms feature strongly in many projects.
