SCHEMES & GRANTS
If you have a disability or condition that restricts your day-to-day living, it can affect your ability to remain living in your home. Sometimes, simple modifications can be the difference between staying at home and moving to specially designed premises.
The Queensland Community Care program provides help with home modifications for people with a disability or condition that restricts their day-to-day living.
If you are a person with disability and you meet the access requirements you can become a participant in the scheme. If you do not meet the access requirements, and you live in a launch site, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) may be able to provide you with information about other supports that could be of benefit to you and assist in referral to these.
The NDIA is also working with local communities to improve inclusion of people with disability and build awareness of disability. We also aim to foster innovation, research and best practice to better support people with disability.
Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants (AHCG) provide funding for equipment, home modifications and emergency respite care to enhance the quality of life for young people with high care needs and their carers. The AHCG program is critical in keeping young Australians at home with their families, and preventing new admissions to inappropriate housing. Grants are offered in Queensland, News South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.
