The Australian Government has opened the second round of Transition Assistance Funding to help businesses build their workforce capabilities to effectively operate in the NDIS.

A total funding pool of $8.8 million is available in this latest round.

Disability and Age Care organisations are encouraged to apply for their share of Transition Assistance Funding, with 440 grants, worth up to $20,000 each, currently on offer.

The Federal Member for Durack, Melissa Price encourages service providers in her electorate to apply.

“This funding could help organisations in their early stages of transition, and it will go a long way to helping ensure local businesses have the tools and capabilities needed to deliver supports to NDIS participants,” Melissa Price said.

The funding can be used for tailored business advice, software upgrades and other one-on-one supports that will help local businesses to get ‘NDIS-ready.

The objective of the Transition Assistance Funding is to help providers transition to the NDIS while also creating more jobs in the disability and aged care sectors, particularly within regional, rural and outer metropolitan areas across Australia.

The second round of Transition Assistance Funding is open now and will close at 11pm on Friday 8 November 2019.

More information, including the Funding Opportunity Guidelines, is available on the Community Grants Hub at
