Home and Community Care Program (HACC)

The Tasmanian Home and Community Care (Tas HACC) program funds community services for Tasmanians under 65 years of age or under 50 for First Nation peoples, and their carers to live independently at home if their capacity for independent living is at risk.


The service aims to help people stay well in their own homes.

Living at risk while independently could be due to:
A health event
Living with an ongoing health condition, people that need ongoing support and do not meet the eligibility for the NDIS.


Who is HACC for?

The program supports people living in Tasmania who are:

  • Aged under 65

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged under 50.

Eligibility is based on an assessment of needs and takes into account a difficulty you have in doing daily tasks.

Who can refer the TCCRS?

Anyone can contact TCCRS to refer someone for service including:

  • you

  • your family

  • your carers

  • health professionals

  • other service providers.
