GP Bulk Billing Grant
Bulk Billing General Practices Grant Fund
What is the Bulk Billing General Practices Grant Fund?
In the 2017-18 budget, the ACT Government committed funding to establish a grant scheme to support the establishment of bulk billing general practices in Canberra's south.
The Bulk Billing General Practices Grant Fund is to encourage the expansion or establishment of new general practices with a demonstrated commitment to bulk billing in Tuggeranong and Molonglo. This may include, but is not limited to, applications where there is a commitment to bulk billing for all patients, and applications with a commitment to bulk billing for identified groups, such as children or healthcare card holders.
How does the Bulk Billing General Practices Grant Fund benefit Canberrans?
The aim is to provide residents in Tuggeranong and Molonglo with better access to affordable, connected, quality primary health care with a view to improving health and wellbeing, particularly for vulnerable members of the population. This includes better coordinated patient care that links with other health services and community health and support programs.
How much funding is available?
The Bulk Billing General Practices Grant Fund is worth $1.05 m over three years. It is recommended that single applications for funding do not exceed $350,000 (excl GST). The ACT Government reserves the right to vary this.
Is my practice eligible for funding?
You can apply for funding if you are establishing a new or expanded bulk billing general practice in Tuggeranong and/or Molonglo, including capital works.
