As you know, most of the current funding agreements for CHSP service providers in Victoria will continue until 30 June 2019. From 1 July 2019, these organisations will transition to the new CHSP agreement in line with national arrangements until 2020.
However, there are a small number of existing CHSP service providers in Victoria which currently have CHSP funding agreements in place that end on 30 June 2018. These organisations will have their current funding agreements extended for twelve months, under the existing DSS Comprehensive Terms and Conditions, to 30 June 2019. These service providers will then transition to the new CHSP Whole of Government grant agreement from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020, in line with the rest of Victoria/Australia.
As announced in the BIDS dated 3 May, the CHSP Manual has recently been updated to include some additional policy clarifications. We have recently had confirmation that the newly released 2018 CHSP Manual also applies to Victorian providers.
