At home care grants

The Young Care At Home Care Grants provide support to young people (aged 18-65) living at home with high care needs and at risk of entering aged care.

The scheme provides grants of $2,00-$10,000 for equipment, home modifications and emergency respite care to keep young people at home with their families and prevent new admissions of young people into aged care. In 2014, over $200,000 was awarded to 35 families in the Queensland round.
