National Disability Strategy - National Disability Conference Initiative 2021 - 2022

Monday, 04 January 2021

The Australian Government is inviting applications in an open competitive process to apply for grant funding under the National Disability Conference Initiative (NDCI) 2021-22.

The NDCI is delivered as part of the activities supporting the aims in the National Disability Strategy and assists in delivering improved outcomes for people with disability and their carers.

There are two categories of grants available under NDCI in 2021-22:

Activity Stream 1: Disability Conference Activity (DCA)
The DCA will be a continuation of the existing NDCI program, providing grants of up to $10,000 (GST exclusive) to enable disability conference organisers to maximise the inclusion and participation of people with disability at their conferences.

Activity Stream 2: Mainstream Conference Inclusion Activity (MCIA)
This is a new activity stream to provide grants of up to $10,000 (GST exclusive) to Disabled People’s Organisations or Families Organisations (DPO/FOs) to collaborate with a mainstream conference organiser.
