The Morrison government understands that having a roof over your head and food on the table is crucial to the welfare of all Australians. That's why we provide the states and territories more than $1.5 billion a year through the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement to support their delivery of key services, as well as invest $45½ million for emergency relief annually as part of our comprehensive more than $170 billion welfare and social security program.

Question agreed to.
