Description:

Through the 2018-19 Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO), the Government committed $30.5 million to introduce a non-recurrent (one-off) Accommodation Management Grant under the Commonwealth Continuity of Support (CoS) Programme for eligible service providers with eligible clients, including those providers yet to transition to the CoS Programme.

The CoS Programme provides continued support to older people with a disability (people aged 65 and over or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50-64 years), who were receiving state-managed specialist disability services but are ineligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) due to their age at the time the NDIS is implemented in a region.

The Accommodation Management Grant aligns with the CoS Programme objective to deliver high quality care support and services to clients to assist to achieve similar outcomes to those they were achieving prior to transitioning to the new arrangements.

The Accommodation Management Grant is a contribution towards the cost of supporting eligible CoS clients, and clients yet to transition to the CoS Programme, living in residential supported accommodation settings including Large and Small Residential Institutions; Hostels; or Group Homes under the CoS Programme. The contribution can be used towards rent, refurbishment, maintenance and/or project management costs and will be paid in 2018-19 to cover two financial years from 2018-19 to 2019-20.

Eligibility:

The Accommodation Management Grant will be available to eligible service providers who are supporting CoS clients, or whose clients are soon to transition to CoS, living in residential supported accommodation settings including:

  • Large Residential Institutions;
  • Small Residential Institutions;
  • Hostels; or
  • Group Homes.

This excludes residential respite/emergency/ temporary accommodation arrangements.

Total Amount Available (AUD):
$30,500,000.00
Instructions for Application Submission:

Eligible service providers will be emailed a pre-populated data questionnaire (which forms the application) on Wednesday 6 February 2019. Eligible service providers will need to validate the CoS client data and return to CommonwealthCOS@health.gov.au by the due date (20 February 2019 at 5pm).
