More funding for Home Assist Secure program for elderly

ELDERLY and disabled people on the Fraser Coast who use the State Government's Home Assist Secure program will be able to continue to rely on the program for the next year.

Housing Minister Tim Mander announced $18 million would be directed to the program for 2013-14.

"For 2013-14, the Department of Housing and Public Works will make some minor adjustments to the program guidelines to better target services," he said.

"These adjustments include a clearer definition of the eligibility criteria and clarity around services such as yard maintenance."
