ACOSS calls for an 'anti-poverty' plan and related measures

Found in: News

ACOSS called this morning for an ‘anti-poverty’ plan and related measures, and for community sector involvement in COAG and other national reform agendas.

Proposals specifically relevant to housing and homelessness in the ‘first 100 days’ election policy launch included calls for whoever takes office to:

  • commence a Green Paper and White Paper process for tax reform using the Henry Tax Review as  a blueprint;
  • commit to the National Rental Affordability Scheme as a long term government priority; and
  • commence negotiations with the states and territories to fund a long term plan of action to  expand affordable housing options and reduce homelessness.
