Western Australian HACC to join Commonwealth Home Support Program from July 2018
on 17 February 2017
Western Australia's Home and Community Care (HACC) program will transfer to the Federal Government on 1 July 2018. This will complete the Commonwealth's takeover of entry-level aged care services for people over 65. An agreement was finalised on 31 January outlining the transition process that will end the jointly funded but state-managed HACC program.
