Disability maintenance fund exceptions application

At the commencement of each financial year maintenance funds will be available to community service organisation (CSO) to cover the unplanned maintenance costs where:

  • the resident profile has insufficient capacity to pay a maintenance charge within their existing accommodation fee; a children’s service where residents receive reduced rates of disability support pension would fit this criteria
  • respite service fees and/or occupancy rates do not provide sufficient income to fund property maintenance.

Applications for funding the above exceptions are to be made by CSO’s and forwarded to regional Department of Human Services Disability Partnership and Service Planning (DPASP) managers.
