The New South Wales (NSW) O'Farrell government has called for tenders to provide disability and community contact services to the region's Indigenous people.
A total of 248 providers, known as Ability Links, will be required to offer a point of contact for Indigenous people seeking disability services, or looking to build stronger personal links within their communities.
Funded through the Department of Family and Community Services, around $286 million has been set aside across six regions in NSW and will be allocated on a performance basis.
Around 27 teams across the state will link with Indigenous communities under the plan and eight Indigenous community organisations will be helped by the new initiative.
Tenders close in February.
