How to Apply

ARIIA is seeking applications from organisations who have a project that will contribute to the betterment of the aged care sector through improved service delivery, adoption of technology and quality of care, and can address one of ARIIA’s sector priorities. 

Round 6 Applications Open Now

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.

Each grant round will be funded against key sector priorities of focus for ARIIA and the aged care sector. For Round 6 ARIIA has consulted with the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission and agreed to add 'Clinical Governance' as a priority topic.

Round 6 will focus on funding projects aligned to the following topics:

  • Dementia care
  • Restorative care, reablement & rehabilitation
  • Social isolation
  • Mental health & wellbeing
  • Palliative care and end of life
  • Meaningful lifestyle activities
  • Addressing staff burnout to increase retention of the aged care workforce
  • Testing technology supported business models to enable efficient and effective delivery of services
  • Human factors – embedding technology in workflow processes to enable efficient and effective delivery of services
  • Clinical Governance
  • Urgent & critical need.

See ARIIA’s aged care topics for more details on our areas of focus. A copy of the Grant Guidelines is available on the Round 6 Grant Application Form.
