Home and Community Care

The Home and Community Care (HACC) Program is a joint Australian, State and Territory Government Initiative.

The HACC Program provides services such as domestic assistance, personal care as well as professional allied health care and nursing services, in order to support older Australians, younger people with a disability and their carers to be more independent at home and in the community and to reduce the potential or inappropriate need for admission to residential care.

Some of the services funded through the HACC Program include:

  • nursing care;
  • allied health care;
  • meals and other food services;
  • domestic assistance;
  • personal care;
  • home modification and maintenance;
  • transport;
  • respite care;
  • counselling, support, information and advocacy;
  • assessment.

Councils provide many of the above services and are eligible for HACC funding.
