19 Feb 2021

  • Due to Hub: 19 February 2021 (note earlier date due to public holiday)

The purpose of the grant opportunity is to design and consult on feasible solutions to address specific Primary Health care service issues within local communities and regions. This grant opportunity will provide initial funding to enable the development of community-supported models of care to a point where they are ready to trial.

Proposals will have a multidisciplinary team focus, and support from key rural health service providers and communities is crucial. Proposals will build on and integrate existing resources to deliver effective and sustainable primary care (including after-hours care) within a region. Funding will support activities such as service design, community consultations, data analysis and financial model design.

The total amount of available funding per organisation is $400,000. The maximum funding any organisation can apply for in each financial year is $200,000. Project duration must be a maximum of two years.
