Funding Round 3 CIR/ISO is now OPEN

January 15, 2014 at 12:50 PM

The third round of the Capability Investment Resource fund opens today. See the text from the website below. The fund is being focussed towards collaboration, joined up activities and continuous improvement!

Capability Investment Resource (CIR)

The Capability Investment Resource is a $31.65 million resource that will be distributed over four years (from 2012/13) to support a stronger, adaptable and more integrated social sector.

It has always been signalled that, over time, the focus of the CIR would shift towards supporting co-operative, joined-up activity and new ways of working together. This recognises that broader, sustainable social development comes from improving cross-sector co-ordination and collective vision.

Aligned with this direction, our strategy for guiding the overarching Organisational Capability Framework (the Framework) has reconfirmed the key priority areas upon which we need to concentrate as we move forward in implementing the CIR:

  • NGO collaboration – involving building strong relationships with existing and new partners, and initiating shared and joined-up activity, particularly around fresh and innovative approaches to service development and delivery
  • the development of learning organisations – involving building a sustainable ‘culture’ of continuous improvement, supported by NGO peer support, mentoring, sharing of knowledge and experience, and joined-up problem solving,[2]

… along with:

  • maintained support for organisational capability, and
  • continued investment in information and communications technology (ICT) capability – both general ICT, and concerning provider capability for working with outcomes (including managing related data, and associated frameworks eg RBA).


Collaboratives or collectives are encouraged to apply.

Has your network or collaborative already successfully applied? It would be great if you could share your experiences with the others to let them know what you intend to do, or how it is working to improve the way you work together to prevent family violence in your community.
