Supporting the 2019 International Day of People with Disability (I-Day) celebrations

July 18, 2019

The 2019 I-Day grants are now open!

The I-Day grants provide an opportunity for individuals and organisations to apply for financial support for a program or event for I-Day, which is celebrated on 3 December each year.

The I-Day grant program invites proposals from applicants to develop and implement a project or event that celebrates and acknowledges the contribution and achievements of people with disability in the ACT community.

Grants allow individuals and organisations to apply for up to $5000 for a program or event that supports 2019 I-Day celebrations.

Community groups and organisations are encouraged to submit an inclusive proposal. Partnerships and joint activities are welcome and public events are encouraged.

Some highlights from 2018 events and activities include an all-day arts workshop with performances; a short film screening and panel discussion; a ‘come and try’ sport day; and a wheelchair challenge.

Applications close at 5pm on Monday 26 August 2019 – for more information and guidelines on how to apply, please visit:
