Funding certainty to ensure continued service provision for clients
As part of the 2019 Australian Government Budget package announced yesterday, funding for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) will be extended from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2022.
Current CHSP grant agreements remain in place until 30 June 2020.
The Department of Health will advise existing CHSP service providers about the process for implementing the funding extension in coming months.
CHSP providers will be kept informed through email updates, webinars and via direct contact from Funding Arrangement Managers (FAMs).
All staff working within CHSP service provider organisations are encouraged to subscribe to receive Department of Health email updates.
