Applications open for residential aged care grants

The Federal Health Department is now accepting applications for grants from its business improvement fund for residential aged care.

Small to medium-sized providers with limited access to other financial support (or facing significant financial pressures which may impact on care to residents or risk service closure) can apply for grant assistance to improve business operations, or support sale of facility to another provider, or closure where no other options are available.

Applications must be submitted via GrantConnect by 2pm AEST on 15 May 2020.
