The Business Improvement Fund is a government initiative that provides short-term grants to eligible aged care providers who are at risk of severe financial difficulty. The grants support small to medium size providers (7 or fewer facilities) located in regional, rural and remote areas where financial decline may impact resident care.
The purpose of the grant is to support providers with limited funds to improve their operations or, where appropriate, to transfer or close their business. But is the BIF grant the best option for you?
