CHP State Budget submission consultation
The 2018-19 budget submission is an important opportunity for the Victorian homelessness sector. In recent years many recommendations in CHP budget submissions have been adopted by the Victorian Government. As homelessness continues to increase in this extremely competitive housing market, it’s important that we continue to get the right responses to help end homelessness in Victoria.
We’re inviting you to contribute your thoughts and expertise to the development of the State budget submission. This stage of the consultation will close at 9 am on Friday 8 September.
