The purpose of the Home Care Packages Program COVID-19 Vaccination Support Grants is to provide additional support to Home Care Package (HCP) providers to increase COVID-19 vaccinations in the home care workforce and provide accurate reports on the vaccination status of the workforce to the Australian Government.
To be eligible to apply you must:
- be a corporation;
- be an approved HCP provider under Part 7A Division 2 Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission Act 2018;
- have at least one care recipient in your care as at 5 November 2022;
- commit to reporting staff vaccination status weekly through the My Aged Care portal.
If a provider is not already reporting weekly on the vaccination status of all staff at all outlets, providers will have one month from receiving the grant to start reporting weekly.
