HACC Response Program
The HACC Program provides funding for services which support frail older people, younger people with disabilities and their carers. These services provide basic support and maintenance to people living at home and whose capacity for independent living is at risk, or who are at risk of premature or inappropriate admission to long-term residential care.
The HACC program is funded jointly by the Australian and Victorian governments under the HACC amending agreement of 1998.
In each Department of Human Services region, funds are allocated for a regional training strategy to address the training priorities of HACC staff in the region. Funds are also allocated for a HACC Regional Training Coordinator (HACC RTC) position to develop and implement the training strategy. In the Grampians Region that position is based at Ballarat District Nursing & Healthcare Inc and has been funded since 2002.
