NDIS Readiness Fund to Give Assistance to NFPs
28 May 2012 at 3:12 pm

Sixty-four Australian Not for Profits will receive grants of up to $30,000 to help prepare them for the rollout of the Federal Government’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers, Senator Jan McLucas said the NDIS Readiness Fund is part of the Australian Government’s $3.1 million investment to help Australian Disability Enterprises prepare for reform.

“These grants will help Australian Disability Enterprises—particularly smaller, regional businesses—prepare for the changes by helping with the costs of new equipment or services such as training sessions,” Senator McLucas said.

“The Australian Government is committed to ensuring the sector is well supported as we move towards this historic reform.

“We want Australians with disability, their families and carers to start benefiting from an NDIS as quickly as possible, because we understand how long people have waited for change.

"A National Disability Insurance Scheme will significantly change how we deliver disability care and support across the country,” Senator McLucas said.

The grants range from $5,400 up to $30,000.
