The theme for Grant Call 6 is Unlocking Potential, Enriching Lives

Persons with disabilities possess great potential for personal and professional growth, and can make valuable contributions to society.

It is therefore important that persons with disabilities have diverse opportunities to learn and grow, pursue their interests, and thrive.

The three domains for this grant call are social recreation, lifelong learning & training and economic activities.


Persons with disabilities often lack options to explore their interests and engage in meaningful activities that are aligned with their goals after graduation.


After graduating from school, persons with disabilities often lack opportunities to continue developing their knowledge and skills (e.g. vocational skills) that are aligned with their passions and abilities.


Persons with disabilities often lack opportunities to use their unique abilities and strengths to engage in economic or financial activities.

The Grant Call 6 opens from 25 August to 8 October. There will be a list of activities throughout this period. On 8 September, a Virtual Sharing Session will be conducted. Following that, a 1-on-1 consultation will be organised from 20 to 27 September. Lastly, a 2-day workshop for shortlisted applicants will be held on 15 and 16 November.
