Victorian Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) Funding extension update

CHSP funding agreements in Victoria are being extended for 12 months from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 to align Victoria with national arrangements.

Agreements are being offered to existing Victorian CHSP service providers from May 2019.

The new funding agreements include conditions for providers to continue delivering services using a wellness and reablement approach, to support and promote client independence. Funding levels will continue unchanged, as per providers’ existing agreements.

The agreements will be based on the whole-of-government grant agreement template. The template includes a standard set of terms and conditions to improve and streamline Commonwealth grant arrangements.

Service providers should contact their Funding Arrangement Manager if they have not received their letter of offer by the end of-May 2019.
