CEOs from 50 homelessness agencies appeal to Scott Morrison to end funding uncertainty in open letter - Media Release Homelessness Australia

9 February 2015

In an unprecedented move, CEOs of more than 50 homelessness agencies and social welfare bodies have united to warn the Federal Government that thousands of vulnerable people could be thrown into homelessness if national homelessness funding is allowed to expire.

A jointly signed open letter to Federal Minister for Social Services, Scott Morrison from the CEOs of more than 50 services including Homelessness Australia, The Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society, Mission Australia and ACOSS appeals to the Federal Government to end the uncertainty surrounding the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH), which expires on 30 June 2015.

The $115 annual Federal NPAH investment funds hundreds of homelessness services nationally to provide programs to women and children affected by family violence, rough sleepers, young people leaving state care and those at risk of homelessness.
