The objective of the ILC Program is to increase social and community participation for people with disability. The aim of this grant opportunity is to improve the economic participation of people with disability, particularly in light of the impact of COVID-19. Priority cohorts for this grant opportunity are:

  • rural and remote based people with disability
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability
  • young people with disability
  • people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD)backgrounds.

In order to increase the number of people with disability in employment, there are a number of challenges and opportunities to be addressed directly:

  • The work readiness of people with disability, including work related skills, competency and knowledge about the workplace. The expected outcome is people with disability have improved job readiness, employment related skills and knowledge (whether industry specific or general), particularly where new employment opportunities have arisen due to the way services are delivered because of COVID-19.
  • Actively linking people with disability to employers and employment related supports, or alternatively, with self-employment opportunities. The expected outcome is people with disability and other stakeholders have increased access to employer groups and employment support networks.
  • Changing the attitudes of employers and organisations, by improving their knowledge and willingness to employ people with disability. The expected outcome is increased willingness and capability of employers and organisations to employ people with disability.

To be eligible to receive this grant, you must be one of the following legal entity types:

  • Company
