Flexible Funds Transition

Organisations previously funded from Flexible Funds will now be funded for their activities under the Government’s revised program structure, which starts on 1 July 2016. This approach will create a simple, streamlined and more transparent way for the Government to invest in health priorities. Guidelines governing funding arrangements will be progressively issued for the new programs from 2016–17.
