The Community Lifestyles Foundation was established in 2010 with a broad purpose to support people with disabilities in the Murraylands region of South Australia. In 2017 a name change to the Community Living Australia Foundation was accepted with the intention of more accurately reflecting a corporate partner relationship with Community Living Australia.
The Community Living Australia Foundation intends to honour the history and efforts of the original Trustees of the Murraylands Community Lifestyles Foundation by preserving the capital of the organisation as at January 2017 for the benefit of projects that specifically benefit people with disabilities in the Murraylands region. Future funds raised may be used toward projects that benefit any peoples with disabilities in South Australia.
To be a partner in supporting people with disability to shape their own lives.
To assist in the funding of initiatives which might enhance lifestyle opportunities for people with disability, their families and carers.
The CLA Foundation is please to announce the release of its grants for the 2017 year.
Two types of grants have been made available by the CLA Foundation for people living with disability.

The Microenterprise Grant Program provides an annual financial grant to a person living with a disability to establish or develop or expand their own microenterprise or small business.
For the coming grant round a total amount of $1,500 has been allocated toward this grant.
Subject to the availability of funds the Trustees of the Community Living Australia Foundation retain the discretion to award more than one grant in any grant round should grant applications of sufficient merit warrant funding.
The Post-Secondary Grant program provides a financial grant to a person living with a disability to support the costs of post-secondary school education and training. The grant is to be used to contribute towards fees or other essential educational requirements.
For the upcoming grant round a total of 3 x $500 grants will be awarded to a total value of $1,500.
Subject to the availability of funds the Trustees retain the discretion to award more grants should grant applications of sufficient merit warrant the extension of funding.
