The homeless supplement aims to better support aged care homes that specialise in caring for people with a history of, or who are at risk of, homelessness.
To be eligible for the homeless supplement, your aged care home needs to:
- be registered for the homeless component of the viability supplement
- have more than 50 per cent of all residents meeting the Viability Expansion Component and Homeless Supplement Assessment criteria.
Information on registration with the department and the eligibility requirements can be found on the Viability Supplement – Expansion page.
Aged care homes that meet the eligibility requirements for the expansion component for homelessness will automatically receive the homeless supplement. The current rate of the homeless supplement is available from the Subsidies and Supplements webpage.
