There are provisions under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) for the allocation of additional growth funding to help meet increased numbers of older Australians needing access to CHSP services. Growth funding is allocated on the basis of identified funding priorities and gaps in service delivery. Broad consultation with the sector informed the priorities that are identified and targeted in this grant opportunity.

This grant opportunity seeks to meet the entry-level aged care needs of older Australians by increasing funding to meet targeted geographic and service needs of clients eligible for CHSP.

This grant opportunity targets two CHSP Sub-Programs and 15 CHSP service types, as outlined in the table at Appendix A (Version 3) – Priority Table. The profile of the targeted growth priorities varies across Aged Care Planning Regions (ACPR) to address the local need and availability of services.

Refer to Section 5.2 - Eligible Locations and Service Types (of the Grant Opportunity Guidelines).
