The Department of Industry is inviting proposals from organisations through the Business Acceleration Grants program. The Disability Sector Scale-Up (DSSU) – Business Acceleration Grants program will help businesses, including NGOs, make the most of the economic growth opportunities available from the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

Three grants sizes are available for Respondents to apply for:

  • Small Grants (up to $499,999)
  • Medium Grants ($500,000 to $999,999)
  • Large Grants ($1,000,000 to $1,999,999).

The DSSU – Business Acceleration Grants program aims to contribute to a strong and sustainable disability sector through improving:

  • the commercial viability of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the disability sector and supply chain, including non-government organisations
  • the adoption of innovative business models, practices and technologies by organisations in the disability sector
  • economic opportunities for Aboriginal peoples, businesses and communities from the NDIS
  • the delivery of the NDIS in NSW:
    • in rural and remote areas
    • to people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds
    • to people requiring psychosocial support.

Applications are welcome from a diverse range of organisations. This includes organisations providing goods or services directly to NDIS Participants, and those who are not involved directly in delivery but have an innovative idea to support the sector.
