$100 million CHSP boost as HCP queue grows

Published

The federal government has announced funding of $100 million for the Commonwealth Home Support program as the latest figures show the waiting list for home care packages continues to balloon.

The funds target five CHSP services including domestic help, meals, transport, home maintenance and home modifications.

Funding will be provided to a “targeted group” of existing CHSP providers over two years, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Ken Wyatt announced in WA on Tuesday.

Providers who deliver the identified service types will be contacted by their funding managers and will receive the first payments from next January.
