Status

This round closed for applications on 12 November 2019. The round was finalised and changes took effect from 1 January 2020.

Results

The 2019–20 round allocated 16 new places to expand existing services and changed the care level of 88 places in existing services, with:

  • 10 new residential aged care places in New South Wales
  • 5 new residential aged care places in South Australia
  • 1 new residential aged care place in Western Australia
  • 88 existing places being changed from low care to high care

Adjusted subsidy reduction was also removed from 262 places across New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia.
