NOVAS’ 2024 Pre-Budget Submission

NOVAS’ 2024 Pre-Budget Submission urges government to increase funding for prevention services, increase housing supply, particularly for one-bed units of accommodation and to commit to sufficiently fund the delivery of homeless services and support.

The organisation has called on government for a simultaneous approach of increasing the supply of social and affordable housing through new builds and the accelerated use of vacant and other-purpose dwellings, while also investing in prevention support and serivces. This approach will create sustainable pathways from homelessness while also reducing the number of households becoming homeless to begin with.
