$1.75m to prevent homelessness
Ms Burney said On Track Community Programs would be funded $586,000 a year for three years to deliver advice and support to families with young children whose residential tenancies were at risk of breaking down.
“Families in social or private rental housing who are unable to maintain their tenancies risk losing their accommodation,” Ms Burney said.
“This can be the start of a devastating cycle of homelessness which has a tragic impact on children’s lives. By supporting families who are struggling with their tenancies, we can prevent them from falling into difficulty and help them keep their home.”
