The Australian Government is inviting organisations via an open, competitive grant process to apply to deliver services under the Social and Community Participation (SCP) stream of the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Program from April 2024 to June 2026.

Funding of up to $50 million will be available to deliver one-off, time-limited activities to support people with disability, their families and carers to participate, contribute and benefit from mainstream community activities including arts, culture, sport and recreation.

The intended outcomes of the SCP stream are people with disability, their families and carers:

  • have greater opportunities to participate and contribute in the community
  • have increased accessibility to, and inclusion in, communities.

It is intended that proposals should be for innovative activities co-designed with people with disability, their families and carers and aligning with Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031.

Activities should be about changing attitudes and practices, resulting in improved delivery of disability services and developing better practices to support people with disability in achieving their life goals.
