How we target support
We continue to deliver targeted support to providers facing viability concerns.
We encourage you to enquire about programs if you believe you meet eligibility criteria.
We also work with the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission and our state and territory offices to identify approved providers that are experiencing financial difficulties and may benefit from support.
