Want assistance to develop a winning ACAR application?

For the 2016-17 ACAR, the Australian Government is not creating an indicative distribution of places by Aged Care Planning Region, instead opting to advertise the availability of places in state- and territory-wide pools.  This is consistent with advice provided in the Aged Care Sector Committee’s Roadmap, which recommends the reduction of controls on the distribution of aged care places.


ACAR Financial Assessment ToolApplications for 10,000 residential aged care places, 475 Short-Term Restorative Care places and up to $64 million in capital grants, are open until 28 October 2016 .


Demand for these places is expected to be high, so preparing an application that stacks up against the competition is crucial.
