Disability grants are one of the most popular categories in our Grants Directory. That’s not surprising, since around 1 in 6 people in Australia are currently experiencing disability.

Disability can be experienced by just about anyone at some point in their lives, including:

  • Children and young people

  • Working age people

  • Older people.

Who is eligible for disability grants?

If you are working to make Australia a better place to live in, you may be eligible for disability grants.

Categories of disability that funding may support include intellectual, physical, sensory, mental health and psychosocial disability.

Funded projects may be based in the home, education settings, workplaces, community centres, and any other environment where people come together.

At The Grants Hub, we help our members find disability grants that will help them serve inclusive and accessible communities. These members include community based organisations, sporting clubs, schools, charities, social enterprises and small businesses.

Are there grants for individuals with disability?

At The Grants Hub, our focus is on grants for small to medium community organisations and businesses.

  • Conduct research activities.

These are just a few examples of what disability grants may be able to help you with!
