Funding for Level 3 Residential Services

SAPA members don’t receive any funding from the government. Their income is generated by the rents paid by the people who live there. But through hard work and dedication, SAPA members have been instrumental in achieving funding for Level 3 Residential Services in the following areas:

  • Brisbane City Council rate rebate – part reduction in one quarter under community support funding
  • Land Tax Exemption – fought for and obtained by SAPA
  • Sprinklers – one off in 2008 for a small number of facilities

Members continue meeting with many areas of Government and community sector agencies in the endeavor to achieve funding for the industry.

Funding for Residents

Through working with various government departments and authorities, SAPA has assisted in achieving help and support for residents with funding of the following services:

  • Funding has been made available to not for profit agencies to provide personal care
  • Funding to provide community linking and support to residents
  • Packages to support residents to maintain accommodation within facilities
  • The NDIS will provide residents with more choice and control over the services they need in their life
