The HACC Program for Younger People provides services for people with disabilities and their carers. Younger people are defined as those aged under 65 and aged under 50 for Aboriginal people. Some of these clients will transfer to the National Disability Insurance Scheme as it rolls out in Victoria over 2016 – 2019.
The HACC Program for Younger People provides basic support and maintenance services to help people with disabilities remain living at home as independently as possible. The HACC Program for Younger People is funded and managed by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.
Victorian local councils make significant contributions to this program. Fees paid by people who use this program also contribute to this program’s resources.
