Health State Network

The Health State Network (HSN) was created to consolidate the Department of Health's grant management functions. Grant administration is delivered as a centralised service to all grant recipients and the department's policy and program areas. The key role of the HSN is to support the Australian Government’s commitment to ensuring ethical, economical, effective and efficient use and delivery of funds for services through a sustainable and consistent approach to grant administration.
