Some good news!
On Friday the Government announced an additional $67.5 million for homelessness services as part of the one year extension to the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement.
This is the funding to cover the costs of the Equal Remuneration Order. Sector peak bodies and the Homelessness Sector were fearful of losing this funding and have done an enormous amount of campaigning in the lead up to this announcement.
