Support for NDIS providers

The Australian Government has established a program to support NDIS providers in meeting their quality and safeguarding responsibilities.

TheSupport for NDIS Providers Program. is managed by the NDIS Commission and funds the development and delivery of tools and resources that will be available to all NDIS providers. These large-scale projects will focus on supporting providers to meet their responsibilities to provide safe and quality services to NDIS participants. The initial focus of the Program is to fund targeted initiatives that support providers transitioning to the new arrangements and to address specific areas of the new provider obligations.

All NDIS Commission grant opportunities are published on GrantConnect.
