The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) is a $5 million grants program to help disability support providers to transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Applications are now open for the second funding round, TAP2, which will focus on growing the disability market in NSW through projects that promote service expansion and conversion.
TAP is funded by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) and delivered by Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) (Formerly, Aged and Community Services NSW & ACT). A total pool of $600,000 is available, with eligible organisations that have transitioned to the NDIS able to apply for up to $15,000 in grant funding.
Who can apply?
Disability support providers currently receiving funding, or that have received funding in the last two years (since February 2015), to deliver services from the Department of Family and Community Services (Ageing, Disability and Home Care) are eligible to apply.
The organisations must also:
- be registered with the NDIA or intending to register to deliver services under the NDIS
- have a total annual revenue (from all sources) less than $5 million
- deliver services in NSW (note that the delivery service area scope has been expanded for TAP2 to also include metropolitan areas)
Applications close: 21 April 2017
