Announcement of 25 new HIPPY Communities for 2015

The Australian Government has announced the new 25 communities to benefit from HIPPY in 2015.  The program will be established in each community later in the year, with a focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.

HIPPY Australia will select the local provider through a competitive expression of interest process (EOI) for each community.  The EOI will close on 26 June 2015 at 5.00pm (AEST).
