Growth funding for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)

The CHSP runs growth funding rounds to expand entry-level aged care services for older people in Australia. Find out what growth funding is, our feedback on how applicants can strengthen their applications and upcoming growth rounds.

What we mean by growth funding

We use growth funding to respond to the evolving needs as Australia’s population grows to provide more funding and services into the CHSP.

We allocate it based on priority geographical areas and service types.

Growth funding helps service providers:

  • expand entry-level aged care services for older people
  • meet demonstrated needs and identified gaps in service delivery.

Why growth funding is important

Growth funding targets specific:

  • CHSP service types
  • priority Aged Care Planning Regions across Australia
  • services where demand is greater than supply.

How we advertise grants

We will list future grant opportunities on GrantConnect when they open.
