The Victorian Government announced over $66 million in new funding to provide up to 250 eligible families and children already in hotels with safe, stable and secure accommodation and tailored wrap-around support. The eligible families will be supported to stay in emergency accommodation until their housing exit is identified as part of a Housing First response. The funding will also ensure that children from these families feel safe and get a stable home.
From 29 October 2021 homelessness agencies will work with singles and couples in hotels to identify suitable housing exit pathways, with exits beginning as soon as practicable and all clients to be exited before 1 February 2022. The gradual phase-down will also ensure clients have sufficient time to be vaccinated and are registered on a new Statewide By Name List for future service continuity.
