Australian Government Department of Health: Message to the Aged Care Sector

Applications open for 2019-20 CHSP Growth Funding Round 

The department is seeking applications from existing aged care and disability service providers to deliver priority Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) services to targeted Aged Care Planning Regions.

Growth funding enables the sector to respond to the changing aged care needs of CHSP clients and aligns with the growth in Australia’s ageing population.

Growth funding is allocated based on funding priorities, which have been identified through consultation with the health and aged care sectors, national peak organisations, state and local governments and existing service providers.

At least $50 million is available in 2019-20 under this CHSP Growth Round, with funding able to be extended for two years through the extension of the CHSP from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2022.

Applications open Friday 6 September 2019 and close Tuesday 8 October 2019 at 11pm.

Find more information on the GrantConnect website.
