  • development of a sustainable funding base
  • monitoring and evaluation, advocacy for central government social and affordable housing strategies which directly address homelessness
  • Working with the private sector and formalising partnerships with central government agencies and non-government organisations (NGOs) for the delivery of integrated health and social services.

b.) request the Chief Executive to report back to the committee with an implementation plan including:

  • establishing mechanisms to engage with cross-sectoral agencies
  • analysis of relevant housing demand and supply
