Making It Our Business

Are you an Aboriginal business or an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation (ACCO)? Would you like to move into or expand in the disability sector? You can apply for funding and support through the Making It Our Business (MIOB) program.

The NSW Government has established Making It Our Business to assist Aboriginal and ACCOs to maximise the economic opportunities created by the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Making It Our Business (formerly known as Aboriginal Economic Opportunities) will also improve the delivery of culturally appropriate support for Aboriginal people with disability.
