About ARIIA Grants

The ARIIA Grants program has been established to help the sector build increased workforce capability and capacity through the implementation of evidence-based research findings that lead to scalable and translatable solutions for the aged care sector. 

Over the course of 2022-2024, the ARIIA Grant Program will consist of up to six rounds. ARIIA will fund projects with a maximum of $160,000 (ex GST) each along with mandatory co-contributions to support translational research projects running for a 12-month period. ARIIA is committed to awarding 60% of these grants to projects that have been developed through the Innovator Training Program and/or Aged Care Partnering Program. The program will follow the pathway outlined below.
