ACC’s Innovation Fund (“the Fund”) will be available to apply for in May 2023. This is the second round of the Fund and aims to support innovative projects which demonstrably contribute to improved outcomes for our clients.

Eligible organisations can apply for up to $100,000 (excluding GST) as a one-off grant, with funding to be issued by 1 December 2023 (for a contract start date of 1 March 2024).

The procurement process to apply for the grant involves a three-step process. This will include a Request for Expression of Interest, shortlisted applicants will be invited to submit a Request for Proposal. Finally, shortlisted applicants from the Request for Proposal step will be invited to present to the final evaluation panel.

We’re looking for innovative initiatives that help whānau to stay connected and engaged with their workplace after an injury. Your proposal could focus on service design, systems, technology, equity, or improvements to a current process.

For this fund we’re not looking for research or injury prevention initiatives – we have other grants or project funding in place for these.
Ideally, your idea should be ready for implementation, without the need for ongoing support from us. It may need funding support to get it off the ground, or it could already be implemented but needs more funding support to get across the line.
