The CHSP 2022-23 extension Grant Opportunity is scheduled to be published on GrantConnect on 13 December 2021.

If a CHSP service provider is considering or planning to exit the program at 30 June 2022, with a decision subject to negotiations, we request this advice is provided in writing to the Community Grants Hub by 18 December 2021. Please note this applies to all CHSP service providers who are not funded to deliver Assistance with Care and Housing, Specialised Support Services and Sector Support and Development.

The department has also published an information fact sheet on:

  • eligibility to negotiate unit price range

  • transition support available to assist cashflow management impacting the transition to payment in arrears

The department hosted a CHSP 2022-23 extension webinar on 17 November 2021 to update the sector on payment in arrears, the extension process and unit pricing. You can watch a recording of the webinar on the department’s website. Common questions and answers from the webinar will be published on the CHSP resources web page by 17 December 2021.
