Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants

Youngcare’s At Home Care Grants (AHCG) program is critical in keeping young people at home with their families, and preventing new admission to inappropriate housing. The Youngcare AHCG’s assist young people (aged 16-65) with high care needs who are living at home and who are at risk of entering inappropriate housing.

The program provides one-off grants of up to $10,000 for the provision of essential support items that are unable to be funded through other means, such as the NDIS.

Applications are now open for people (16-65) with high physical support needs who require equipment, home modifications or support services. This includes people at high risk of placement into inappropriate housing, people living with a recognised physical disability (e.g. Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, ABI or Quadriplegia), living at home or in supported housing (not aged care or rehab/hospital).

People with an NDIS plan are required to have tried the NDIS and any other avenues of funding prior to submitting their application. Please note, people with outstanding Grants or acquittals are ineligible to apply for this round.

Application close 18 August. Find out more or apply.
