The Australian Government is inviting applications in an open process to apply to deliver services under the Disability, Mental Health and Carer: National Disability Conference Initiative in 2019-2020
The National Disability Conference Initiative provides grants to help people with disability to participate in nationally-focused disability-related conferences held in Australia. Grants will support eligible conference organisers to provide accessibility measures that will maximise the inclusion and participation of people of people with disability at their conference.
The National Disability Conference Initiative aims to:
- Enable people with disability greater opportunities to participate in all areas of Australian life by assisting them and their carers with the costs of attending disability-related conferences that might otherwise be inaccessible to them.
- Greater participation and inclusion of people with disability at nationally-focused, disability-related conferences in Australia.
To be eligible, applicants to the National Disability Conference Initiative (NDCI) must be one of the following entity types:
- Indigenous Corporation
- Incorporated Association
- Statutory Entity
- Trustee on behalf of a Trust
Certain non-legal entity types can be considered eligible for this NDCI grant opportunity. The following non-legal entity type is eligible for this grant opportunity:

Applications from consortia are acceptable, as long as you have a lead applicant who is solely accountable to the Commonwealth for the delivery of grant activities and is an eligible entity as per the list above. The lead applicant must also be an organiser of the conference specified on the NDCI application. For more information, please refer to section 7.5 of the Grant opportunity Guidelines.
