The Federal Government has announced applications are open for the first Information, Linkages and Capacity Building grant for economic and community participation. Elizabeth guides you through the nuts and bolts of this opportunity.
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.
Troublingly, estimates show that only 89% of people with disability in Australia will not be eligible for the NDIS. Sara explores how providers can support people will find themselves ineligible but still very much in need of support.
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 latest funding round for Information, Linkages & Capacity Building (ILC) opened yesterday and the funding available is greater than any previous round.

The successful applicants of the first round of ILC National Readiness Grants have now been announced.
The NDIA have now released the list of organisations who will be funded under the Information, Linkages & Capacity Building (ILC) program in the ACT.
DSC is getting lots of calls from organisations confused about how the ILC program will operate. Sadly, once you understand the fundamentals of ILC and LAC, confusion is replaced with serious concern. Roland outlines the major failings of the ILC program design - and how a failure to address these might just kneecap the NDIS.
In the ILC Program Guidelines released last week, the NDIA confirmed that the upcoming funding round for ILC is not just about the ACT. In addition to Jurisdictional based grants, around $15 million in "National Readiness Grants" will be up for tender.
The NDIA has just announced the latest development in its roll out of the ILC and LAC. We have some serious concerns about the development of these programs and how they threaten the credibility of the NDIS.
Many believe that the NDIS is a threat to small, locally based organisations. Professor Shelley Mallet gives an overview of two approaches that support local collaboration and can also play a key role in the success of the ILC program.
We believe collective impact has enormous potential to support ILC projects. For those of you who want to learn more about collective impact, here are some websites with fabulous resources.
