The Commonwealth Home Support Programme aims to support frail, older people aged 65 years and over (or aged 50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) to live as independently as possible in their own homes and community for as long as they can and wish to do so.

Through the 2019-20 Growth Funding Round a minimum of $50 million is available to eligible providers to deliver targeted service types in areas of high need identified by the Department of Health.  

The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:

  • allow high performing organisations in the aged care and disability sector to receive new or additional funding under the CHSP
  • target funding to specific Aged Care Planning Regions (ACPR) with identified gaps in service delivery

  • increase funding for high demand CHSP service types.

The intended outcome of the grant opportunity is to expand entry-level aged care services for senior Australians through targeted growth funding to meet demonstrated need in accordance with the objectives of CHSP.


To be eligible to apply you must be an existing provider of aged care or disability services. Eligible organisations are encouraged to apply for three (3) or more service types within an Eligible Location, with the exception of where the specialisation of an organisation or the nature of the service type means that it is not appropriate to be grouped with other services.

The eligible locations for service delivery are listed in the Commonwealth Home Support Programme Growth Funding 2019 – 20 Grant Opportunity Guidelines (GO2783).
