Sydney – Pride Foundation Australia has announced a round of grants worth $20,000 focusing on supporting LGBTI people with disabilites.

Formerly known as the Gay and Lesbian Foundation Australia (GALFA), Pride Foundation Australia today announced the joint funding round in partnership with the Sidney Meyer Fund.

The funding will be allocated towards projects that aim to improve the wellbeing of LGBTI people with disabilities, with expressions of interest due to close on August 16, 2019.

PFA is encouraging applications for projects that will see collaboration between LGBTI advocacy and disability advocacy groups.

In a statement, PFA said that projects should focus on areas including “reducing isolation and building community capacity”, “building evidence”, and “enhancing cultural engagement and development”.

Grants will be awarded to nationally-applicable projects over a one to two-year period through community development, education initiatives, events or conferences, or community-led research in the field.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a full grant application in September, with awardees to be announced in December 2019.
