Disability Community Event Grants open — apply now!
Community, sporting and cultural groups, schools and other NGOs, have until 15 June to apply for up to $5000 to hold an event during this year’s Disability Action Week or International Day of People with Disability.
Events may promote the rights and wellbeing of people with disability; strengthen how they may access and be included within their community; or encourage mainstream services and the broader community to connect and engage with people with disability.
The Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services is also encouraging events that support communities, local businesses and community services to take up opportunities being presented by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which will roll out in Queensland from 1 July 2016.
Successfully applying for a grant is a great opportunity to engage with people with disability and help break down and remove barriers to accessibility and inclusion.
A total of almost $150,000 is available for events to be held across Queensland during Disability Action Week 2015 (13-19 September) or on International Day of People with Disability (3 December).
Applications close on Monday 15 June 2015. For more information, please go to: Disability Community Events Grants 2015
