Expressions of interest for housing solutions

Community organisations are invited to apply for a share of $6.6 million to create innovative housing for young people with disability living in residential aged care or who are long-stay in public health facilities.

The capital funding will commence this financial year, to build or modify housing for adults with disability who are either inappropriately housed in residential aged care or who are long-stay in public health facilities. The locations of the new or modified dwellings will be based on the level of need across the state.

To submit an application go to Smarty Grants.

Expressions of interest close 13 February 2015. Short-listed providers will be invited to participate in a select tender process.
