The International Day of People with Disability (I-Day) Grants provide funding of up to $6,000 for individuals and community organisations to support disability led events, projects or initiatives that celebrate the purpose of I-Day.

I-Day is held on 3 December each year. It is a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to promote community awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and support the dignity, rights, and well-being of people with disability.

I-Day also aims to increase awareness of the benefits of inclusion of people with disability in every aspect of political, social, economic, and cultural life.

Potential I-Day Grant recipients projects need to be able to illustrate one or more of the following:

- Display or celebrate the skills, abilities, contributions, and achievements of people with disability.
- Promote community awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability.
- Provide opportunities for people with and without disability to come together, share ideas and network.
- Build options for people with disability to connect with community.

Applications close 3pm Tuesday 12 March 2024.
