The Australian Government is inviting applications in an open competitive process to deliver activities under the Support for NDIS Providers Program through the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
The Support for NDIS Providers Program is a new four year grants program of up to $17.6 million from 2018-19 to 2021-22, for a national information and education program to develop and grow a quality market in the NDIS, emphasising compliance obligations through the lens of the people with disability accessing NDIS supports and services.
The objective of this grant opportunity is to support the transition of NDIS registered providers to meet new requirements set out in the NDIS Act 2013 and the NDIS (Provider Registration and Practice Standard) Rules 2018.
It also aims to help those existing and prospective NDIS providers to enter and remain in the NDIS market who have a demonstrated commitment to supporting and promoting the rights, health, and wellbeing of people with disability participating in the NDIS.

- NDIS providers understand their registration obligations and comply with them.
- NDIS providers demonstrate capacity to provide quality support and service provision to NDIS participants.
- Efficient costs for NDIS providers registered for the NDIS through readiness to undertake the registration application processes and to be assessed against relevant practice standards.
- An increase in the proportion of NDIS providers actively participating in the NDIS market and supporting NDIS participants in achieving their individual outcomes and goals
