Through the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook 2018-19, the Australian Government has committed $30.5 million in 2018-19 to introduce a non-recurrent (one-off) Accommodation Management Grant under the Commonwealth Continuity of Support (CoS) Programme for eligible CoS service providers, including those providers yet to transition to the CoS Programme.

The Accommodation Management Grant is a contribution towards the cost of supporting eligible CoS clients, and clients yet to transition to the CoS Programme, living in residential supported accommodation settings under the CoS Programme including:

  • Large and Small Residential Institutions;
  • Hostels; or
  • Group Homes.

The contribution can be used towards rent, refurbishment, maintenance and/or project management costs and will be paid in 2018-19 to cover two financial years from 2018 19 to 2019 20. Applications for the Accommodation Management Grant closed in February 2019.
