Council to Homeless Persons is pleased to provide this submission to the Economics Legislation Committee on the provisions of the Treasury Laws Amendment (National Housing and Homelessness Agreement) Bill 2017, which seeks to legislate the framework for the proposed National Housing and Homelessness Agreement.
We are deeply concerned that the proposed Bill risks undermining the provision of affordable housing options targeted to those who are most vulnerable to homelessness.
While we support the stated intent of the Bill to achieve ‘stricter accounting for results’ and
increased supply of social housing, we do not believe these outcomes will be achieved by the Bill in its current form.
