Individuals and community groups now have the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft Program Guidelines for the Supported Accommodation Innovation Fund initiative.
This $60 million initiative, spanning three years will help build innovative, community-based supported accommodation places for people with disability.
This funding will be used to create 150 new places to help address the need for accommodation and respite places for people with severe or profound disability, their carers and families. Projects could include renovations to existing homes, pooled resources to build contemporary accommodation services close to community and health services or the modification of existing accommodation within the community.
The draft Program Guidelines are now available on the FaHCSIA website, along with details about how you can make a submission. Your feedback will help shape the final Program Guidelines to be released later in 2011.
Comments will be accepted by email only, and submissions close on 25th July 2011.
