Successful NDIS grants announced

Durak grant recipients that have been successful in the second round of the Transition Assistance Funding initiative under the Boosting the Local Care Workforce program have been announced.

Durack MP Melissa Price said 14 grants worth up to $20,000 each had been awarded to service providers working in the electorate.

"This funding helps organisations in their early stages of transition, and will go a long way to helping ensure local businesses have the tools and capabilities needed to deliver supports to NDIS participants," she said.

"Transition Assistance 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 Transition Assistance Funding is set to help providers transition to the NDIS while also creating more jobs in the disability sector, particularly in regional, rural and remote areas across Australia.

Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme Stuart Robert said the Australian Government was committed to building a sustainable NDIS provider market that is ready to support the needs of participants now and long into the future.
