The Tasmanian HACC program provides funding for basic community care services for people who want to live independently, but need a bit of support to make it happen. 

This program  also helps to reduce the risk of having to go into supported accommodation before a person really wants to. 

The service is for people aged 65 years or less who are living with disability or mental illness.

For those who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, the age group is 49 years and under. 

The HACC program is funded by the Tasmanian Government.

Eligibility and Referral: 

To access this support, you will first need to register with Tasmanian Community Care Referral Service (TCCRS).

The TCCRS is the first point of contact for all Tasmanians, aged 64 years and under, looking for disability or mental health support.
