Autism Queensland secures funding in latest round of NDIS ILC grants
Autism Queensland has secured funding for a project that aims to help Australian businesses become more aware of the benefits of employing and supporting individuals on the autism spectrum.
The Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme Stuart Robert announced yesterday (July 31) that the Australian Government would be investing $19.6 million in Economic Participation of People with Disability grants, as part of the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) program.
The grant awarded to Autism Queensland will enable the organisation to partner with Queensland businesses in a pilot that will form the basis of a program incorporating evidence-based autism-specific approaches that can be rolled out in collaboration with disability employment services nationally.
