Peak Body Funding


  • Increase of $20,000.00 core funding each for peak bodies who support older Tasmanians, young people, volunteers & multicultural community
  • Apply annual indexation for DPAC-funded peak bodies
  • Establish three new peak bodies for: Carers, Men’s sheds and Veterans
  • Increase of National Disability Services core funding to $200,000 p/a for three years, to support the NDIS transition

TasCOSS commentary 

Indexation is welcome and important for sustainability, however no CPI has been made for the past 7 years, in some circumstances leaving a gap in funding to meet basic operational costs.

The additional $20,000 top-up will provide a small amount of relief.

The DPAC rate of 2.25% matches the DHHS rate.
