$500,000 boost for emergency housing providers

Mar 26, 2015 | News

“In January the Prime Minister announced Government plans to support the emergency housing sector with a $500,000 cash injection alongside a wider review of funding, as part of our Social Housing Reforms,” says Mrs Bennett.

Today’s announcement sees additional short-term funding go to 16 organisations who currently contract with the Ministry of Social Development to provide services to at-risk families in emergency accommodation.

“Emergency housing providers work with some of the most vulnerable people in our communities, and we’re committed to supporting the vital work they do for people and families with no safe, stable home to go to.”

This boost will support providers during a thorough review to determine how the sector is currently funded, clearly establish the results government funding wants to achieve, and identify options for funding going forward.
