Dear Aged Care Stakeholder,

On 23 June 2015 the Assistant Minister for Social Services, Senator the Hon Mitch Fifield, made an important announcement that funding would be granted to support providers transitioning to the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP).

$20 million in transition support funding will be allocated for providers transitioning into the CHSP as a contribution that recognises activities are already underway to align business systems to the new programme taxonomy.  CHSP providers are currently updating their service details through the My Aged Care Portal, as well as preparing their business systems and operations to comply with the new information management reporting requirements and the introduction of a new CHSP Fees Framework.

All providers transitioning to the CHSP, who are providers at 26 June 2015, are eligible for this additional funding.  Providers will be contacted with regard to this funding through a Letter of Offer shortly.

Yours sincerely

Authorised for digital distribution
