Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) is an important part of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
ILC is the tier of the NDIS that supports communities and mainstream services to build their capacity to include, support and involve people with disability by developing resources and providing connections to services and supports in the community.
You do not have to be eligible for the NDIS in order to access ILC activities and resources.
ILC Grants 2017-2018
More than $8 million in State and Commonwealth government funding has been awarded to almost 50 organisations around Western Australia in the latest round of the ILC grants program.
This follows a comprehensive Expression of Interest process.

- Improving links for people with disability to relevant mainstream and community services;
- Increasing knowledge and capability within mainstream services;
- Connecting people with disability and their communities; and
- Supporting people with disability to engage with and navigate the NDIS.
Information about the successful grant recipients is available on the Tenders WA website.
