The Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Program provides grants to organisations to deliver supports and services for all people with disability, not only those eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). ILC has two main and interlinked aims:
provide supports and information to as many Australians with a disability as possible
fund activities that help Australian communities be better equipped and more competent
at including people with disability in economic and community life.
These guidelines contain information for the Economic Participation 2020–21 grant opportunity and
must be read before filling out an application.
The guidelines set out:
the purpose of the Economic Participation grant opportunity
the eligibility and assessment criteria
how grant applications are considered and selected
how grantees are notified and receive grant payments
how grantees will be monitored and evaluated
responsibilities and expectations in relation to the opportunity.
This grant opportunity and the process will be administered by the Department of Social Services (the
department) and the Community Grants Hub.
2 About the grant program
The objective of the ILC Program is to increase social and community participation for people with disability. The ILC program seeks to do this by:
building the capacity of people with disability to participate in their community
creating opportunities for people with disability to participate by creating more inclusive
services and communities.
The Economic and Community Participation Program is one of four discrete and complementary
programs delivered under the ILC Strategy.
The four programs are:
Economic and Community Participation Program – increasing the social and economic
participation, including employment outcomes, of people with disability.
National Information Program – providing accessible, quality and consistent information
about disability types and services and support options (community and mainstream).
Mainstream Capacity Building Program – ensuring equity of access to, and increase
inclusion of, people with disability in mainstream services.
Individual Capacity Building Program – enabling systematic, nationwide access to peer
support, mentoring and other skills-building for people with disability, carers and families,
primarily delivered through a national network of Disabled Peoples Organisations and Families

These four programs are designed to ensure:
There are alternative pathways to ordinary life for people with a disability particularly
by building the capacity of individuals without an NDIS plan to achieve their goals outside
of specialist disability services.
People with disability, their family and carers have greater access to information and supports.
People with disability, their family and carers build their knowledge, skills and confidence
to participate in social and economic life.
A more aligned system of ILC service delivery, grounded in organisations run by and for people
with a disability and/or their families and carers.
Strong collaboration across government and the sector that avoids duplication and maximises
the department’s investment in ILC.
The objectives of the Economic and Community Participation Program are being implemented via two streams: Economic Participation, and Social and Community Participation, as outlined in the ILC Program Guidelines 2019-20 to 2021-22.
