Residential Aged Care Funding Reform Trial

The department will trial a new assessment framework for residential aged care funding in late 2019 and early 2020. Between 5,000 and 10,000 aged care residents will be assessed using the Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) tool as part of the trial. Find more information on the AN-ACC tool here.

How to participate

We invite residential aged care service providers to submit expressions of interest to participate in the trial.

EOIs should be submitted to ResiFundingTrial [at] by 31 July 2019. Please include the name of your organisation, facility information, and the details of a key contact (name, position, phone number and email).

All providers participating in the trial will receive a summary overview of the AN-ACC classification profile for each participating facility.

If you have previously expressed interest in participating there is no need to resubmit.
