Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants
Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants program is critical in keeping young people at home with their families, and preventing new admissions in to inappropriate housing.
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 grants provide one-off funding between $2,000 and $10,000 to help those aged 18-65 with high care needs who are living at home, and are at risk of entering inappropriate housing.
Applications for Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants in Victoria and Tasmania are NOW CLOSED. Applicants will be advised of the outcome on the 27th April.
