 National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness

Under the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH), the Australian and Queensland Governments provide matched funding aimed at significantl y reducing homelessness in Queensland, in partnership with the community services sector.

2017-18

Through the Transitional National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness 2017-18, the Queensland and Australian Governments fund existing and new homelessness initiatives to improve access, tenancy sustainment and service integration as part of a person-centred housing and homelessness response.

The Australian Government has committed $29.4 million in Transitional NPAH funding for Queensland in 2017-18, and Queensland is providing $39.4 million, exceeding the matched funding requirements. Under the agreement Queensland continues to prioritise investment in initiatives supporting young people, as well as people impacted by domestic violence who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

State, Territory and Australian Governments continue to work towards the reform and reinvigoration of national policy settings and federal funding relationships in respect to housing and homelessness.
