- 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

The additional $20,000 top-up will provide a small amount of relief.
The DPAC rate of 2.25% matches the DHHS rate.
