With the Federal Government yet to recommit to National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH) funding beyond 2015, the Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) has joined with 60 other organisations Australia-wide in signing an open letter to Minister Scott Morrison, calling for this funding to be continued.
The CHP warned that thousands of homelessness clients will be left abandoned if the Federal Government does not extend the $115 National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH), $23 million of which goes to Victorian services. The NPAH funding is due to expire on 30 June and provides for over 90 homelessness programs in Victoria, including Safe at Home.
