On 23 April 2020, the Victorian Government announced an additional $31.3 million over 2019/20 and 2020/21 to increase supports for carers and boost capacity in Care Services as part its $77.5 million package of supports for vulnerable children and families during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Advice for Care Services providers on implementing these supports is now available on the Funded Agency Channel:

For those initiatives where funding is being allocated to Care Services providers, this will occur through a bulk upload to SAMS2 in the early June variation window.
