In preparation for the launch of our Accessible Business Grant, our Disability Advisory Committee has helped develop a video and fact sheets to show local businesses why access is important and what they can do to make their business more accessible.
Local businesses can receive up to $5000 to make improvements or enhancements which increase the accessibility of their business for people with a disability. Our handy fact sheets are grouped into no-cost, low-cost and investment checklists, so businesses can look to the low-cost and investment items for ideas about what to apply for.
The types of proposals we can fund include:
The Accessible Business Improvement Grant opens on Monday 7 February 2022.
These checklists include actions you can take to improve accessibility for your business.
