In July 1998 a submission was put to the National Office of the Infotion Economy (NOIE) which is now the Federal Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts (DCITA).
The Deafblind Association was successful in receiving an accessibility grant in September 1998 and the funding continued for 3 years.
Since then The Link has been funded by a range of philanthroic trusts and is constantly looking for small amounts of funding to ensure the training facility can constantly update the technology and provide relevant advice and testing for new products as they arrive on the market.
The Deafblind Association has been very generous in providing any additional funding that is requried.
