ClosedGrant Closed: 31st of January 2024 - 2:00 pm Value: 50% of Costs Run By: Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=8d836191-c441-4289-978f-7cf8323ade18

The Aged Care Wages – Historical Leave Liability Grant Opportunity will provide $130.9 million 2023-24 to fund aged care providers for 50% of the cost associated with paying higher leave entitlements for workers that have had their wages increased as a result of the FWC’s decision. Funding can only be claimed to ‘top up’ relevant leave entitlements that are directly attributable to the FWC’s decision of a 15 per cent wage increase.

Aged care providers include those that provide one of the following aged care programs:

  • Residential Aged Care,
  • Home Care Packages Program,
  • Commonwealth Home Support Programme
  • Transition Care Programme
  • Short Term Restorative Care Program
  • Multi-Purpose Services and
  • National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flexible Aged Care Program.

Eligible leave liabilities are long service leave (recognised at the first full pay period on or after 30 June 2023), recreation leave (also known as annual leave) and personal leave (also known as sick leave).

Eligible aged care workers are those that have had their wages increased as a result of the Government’s $11.3 billion funding to support increased wages for aged care workers as part of the FWC’s decision for a 15 per cent wage increase for eligible Aged Care workers.
