New National Housing and Homelessness Agreement and recurrent NPAH funding
by Western Homelessness Networker.
24th May 2017


The Federal Government has created a new National Housing & Homelessness Agreement, bringing together the former National Affordable Housing Agreement and the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH). 

The NPAH component, that has been rolling over annually for four years will now be funded ongoingly and with indexation.

It is likely that the new Agreement will bring with it significant outcome measures linked to the funding. 

For now anyway the homelessness sector can breathe a sigh of relief with some security of funding. However, the new Agreement does not bring with it the much needed growth funds to assist us to respond to the increasing numbers of people presenting to our services who are experiencing homelessness.
