Early Intervention Investment Framework

The Victorian Government’s Early Intervention Investment Framework (EIIF) is helping guide early interventions to improve the lives of Victorians and deliver better and fairer outcomes across the service system.

By linking Government’s funding to measurable impacts both for people using the services as well as the service system, the EIIF guides investments to where timely assistance for Victorians will reduce acute service usage and improve outcomes for vulnerable service users.

The 2021-2022 Budget provided $324 million across ten initiatives to deliver targeted, effective assistance to vulnerable people, reducing the likelihood of their needs escalating. The package supports Victorians across a range of different cohorts, including Victorians experiencing homelessness, families whose children are at risk of being placed in care, disengaged young people, and Victorians with chronic health conditions.

Funded initiatives:

  • Engaging and supporting at-risk young people
  • Early intervention and diversion
  • Tackling rough sleeping
  • Putting Families First
  • 100,000 Lives
  • Driving shorter waits and better outcomes from elective surgery
  • Legal assistance and critical early intervention support services
  • Crime Prevention Initiatives
  • Giving vulnerable and disadvantaged kids the best start in life
  • Marrung (Koorie Initiatives Package)

For further information on the EIIF, please contact earlyintervention@dtf.vic.gov.au.
