Results of the 2009-10 Aged Care Approvals RoundA total of 12,272 new aged care places will be allocated across Australia with recurrent funding of approximately $450 million a year.
The new places comprise:

A total of $147 million in Zero Real Interest Loans (ZRIL) will be offered to providers to build 819 of the new residential places.
