The department is seeking applications from high performing aged care and disability support providers to deliver targeted entry level services in the home to older Australians through the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).
As part of this grant opportunity, the department is committing up to $124.4m in additional grant funding across 2020-21 and 2021-22 financial years. This will include $32.2m per year over two years commencing in financial year 2020-21 and a separate allocation of up to $60m in 2021-22.
This additional growth funding will:
- increase the capacity of the CHSP to provide prioritised entry level aged care services in high demand areas
- provide more support and choice of services to older Australians requiring some help to remain living safely at home and in their community.
The grant round is open until 5 February 2021. Late submissions will not be considered.
