The NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) is providing financial support to enable funded services with a revenue less than $5m to meet the requirements of achieving Australian Service Excellence Standards (ASES) accreditation by 30 June 2024 – ASES policy framework. This includes the cost of engaging an ASES assessor and other eligible associated costs.
The maximum grant amount per eligible organisation is $16,000 (including GST).
The objective of the grant is to provide one-off financial support to homelessness service providers undergoing ASES for the first time. The intended outcome of the grant is that organisations with under $5m revenue are financially supported to achieve ASES by 2024. The grant is designed to be flexible to allow eligible organisations to meet their ASES requirements, noting each organisation may have different support needs.
