The federal government is offering $10 million in grants to disability service providers with innovative ideas to grow the National Disability Insurance Scheme workforce.

Applications for the first round of Jobs and Market Fund (JMF) grants were opened on Thursday by Social Services Minister Paul Fletcher and Assistant Social Services Minister Sarah Henderson.
