In the 2017-18 budget, the government announced that it would introduce indexed and ongoing funding for homelessness for the first time, giving certainty to the homelessness sector. Over the next three years, the government is providing $375 million to the states and territories to deliver homelessness services programs through the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement. The legislation to achieve this is currently before the Senate. This legislation requires the states and territories to have a publicly available housing and homelessness plan.
Question agreed to.
