Community Services Directorate—funding(Question No 1732)
Mr Doszpot asked the Minister for Community Services, upon notice, on 17 August 2011:
(1) In relation to Estimates question on notice No E11-358, what is the per place funding of the 435 accommodation places supported by Disability ACT.
(2) What is the budget allocation for Output 1.1, for the years 2012-13 to 2014 15.
(3) What portion of funding under Output 1.1 is allocated to supporting accommodation places in the ACT for the years 2012-13 to 2014-15.
Ms Burch: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) The figure of 435 accommodation support places relates to the performance indicator target for the 2010-11 financial year. The National Disability Agreement expenditure by service type for the 2010-11 financial year is not expected to be finalised and acquitted to the Australian Government Productivity Commission until 30 September 2011 and will be published in 2013.
Therefore the expenditure for an accommodation support place is not available for 2010-11 at this time.
(2) The forward estimates for the budget allocation for Output Class 1.1, Disability Services and Policy are:
• $86.5m in 2012-13;
• $91.6m in 2013-14; and
• $95.3m in 2014-15.
(3) In 2010 -11 65% of the Disability ACT operational budget was allocated to the provision of accommodation support services. Final expenditure against this budget will be finalised by 30 September 2011and reported to the Australian Government Productivity Commission.
The proportion of expenditure on accommodation support services is approximated to be 70% of Disability ACT‘s operational expenditure for the 2011-12 financial year. This proportion incorporates the recent inclusion of all Young People in Residential Aged Care (those under the age of 65) as part of the national health and disability reforms. A similar proportion is expected for the forward estimates.
