Enhanced Service Offer – Grant Rounds Announced

ACT Minister for Disability, Children and Young People Joy Burch has announced additional funds of $7.7 million dollars over two years for people with disability from July 2013.

From July eligible ACT residents with disabilities, including those with psycho-social disabilities, will be able to apply for one-off grants that may be used in a variety of ways to improve their quality of life. These grants may be for aids and equipment or other services that reduce the impact of their disability, improve independence and increase participation in community activity. There will be two rounds of grants; one in July and one in September 2013.

Eligible Canberrans will be able to apply for Grants which may be used in a variety of ways to best meet their needs, goals, and lifestyles. If you are thinking about putting in an application for a Grant when the rounds open, we really encourage you to start thinking and talking to people now about the different ways you could use funds to meet your disability related needs. More information regarding the Grant Rounds.
