$17 million investment in homeless support

Barcham 29 July 2013

The Federal Labor Government and the ACT Government are joining forces to crate long term accommodation and support services to Canberrans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Julie Collins and Shane Rattenbury announced the $17 million boost today.

“I’m pleased that the ACT Government has signed up to the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness for 2013-14 and is also receiving capital project funding through our $43 million Development Fund,” Ms Collins said.

“This joint funding injection will support seven existing homelessness services and build a new housing facility in Gungahlin for some of Canberra’s most vulnerable people.”
