Victorian 2024-25 Budget snapshot

The Victorian Government released its 2024/25 State Budget on 7 May. In a tight budget across the board, $197 million has been allocated to housing and homelessness over 4 years. It provides critical funding for some frontline services, but much more is needed to respond to the state’s once-in-a-generation homelessness crisis.

Contribute to Parity edition on local government

Contributions are now being sought for the August edition of Parity magazine: “New Directions: Redefining Local Government’s Role in Ending Homelessness”. This issue will look widely at local government responses to homelessness – where local government can best respond, and document best practice examples from all across Australia, building knowledge and skill and encouraging more positive community-led partnerships that will work to end homelessness.
