Applications now open for CHSP Growth Funding Round

The department is seeking applications from organisations to deliver targeted priority Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) services across Aged Care Planning Regions.

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

  • Funding of up to $115 million is available over two years from 2016-17 to 2017-18.
  • Applications open Monday, 17 October and closes at 2pm (AEDT) on Tuesday, 29 November 2016.
  • Growth funding is allocated based on funding priorities.
  • Priority areas have been informed by broad consultation with the health and aged care sectors.

The focus of this open selection process is to target CHSP Sub-Program and CHSP service types as outlined in the supporting documentation. The profile of the targeted priorities varies across State/Territories, ACPRs, and client (special needs) groups to address identified service gaps in localised areas.

Through the delivery of timely, high quality entry-level support services which takes into account each person’s individual goals, preferences and choices, and underpinned by a strong emphasis on restorative approaches, including wellness and reablement, the CHSP will help its clients stay living in their own homes for as long as they can and wish to do so.

Information for applicants and how to apply is available on the department‘s website.
