The National Partnership Agreement On Homelessness

Under the NHHA, to secure funding, state and territory governments must have publicly accessible housing and homelessness strategies and help improve data collection and reporting. The agreement focuses on three key strategies to reduce homelessness: homelessness strategies must target priority NHHA cohorts and outline reforms or initiatives that reduce the incidence of homelessness. Priority cohorts of homelessness include: Annual funding has a significant impact on the ability of services to work efficiently and advance planning. The practice of announcing extensions within a few months of the expiration date of the previous iteration of the NPAH creates great uncertainty and has a negative impact on those affected or threatened by homelessness. In February, more than 60 CEOs of homelessness and domestic violence services, high-level representatives and interests signed an open letter to the minister requesting long-term funding. In 2013-14, 423 requests for homeless services could not be met every day. Without NPAH services, this figure will increase dramatically. 80,000 clients are supported each year by NPAH-funded programs to rebuild their lives. Without these programs, many of these clients will not be able to be helped and will remain homeless or homeless. ”People who are homeless or at risk of homelessness achieve sustainable housing and social inclusion.” You can participate in the campaign for the promotion of the NPAH: in 2015 we are committed to safety. We call for the end of this one-year cycle. The National Housing and Homelessness Agreement (NHHA) began on 1 July 2018 and makes available annually to states and territories around $1.5 billion to improve Australians` access to safe and affordable housing across the housing spectrum.
