Ideas invited for National Housing and Homelessness Plan

Local governments are invited to contribute ideas and innovations for the development of the Australian Government’s National Housing and Homelessness Plan.

The Plan will be a 10-year strategy and will outline a shared vision to inform future housing and homelessness policy in Australia.

Submissions are now invited for an Issues Paper on Housing and Homelessness in Australia, that provides an overview of known issues in different parts of the housing and homelessness systems and poses a series of questions.

Councils can share their ideas and experiences by responding to guided questions or lodging a written submission by 22 September 2023.

There will also be opportunities to contribute to the plan through a range of face-to-face workshops and online forums across the country.
