Budget Submission

National Shelter has provided a budget submission to the federal government calling for new spending on social housing, an affordable housing growth fund, a new National Affordable Rental Incentive, increases to Commonwealth Rent Assistance, improved indexation of the National Housing and Homelessness Agreement and other measures to be paid for by reforming the tax treatment of housing.

We have also called for the establishment of Cabinet level Minister to call for and develop a National Housing Strategy.

Ideally a Minister would cover housing within an Urban and Regional Development role as part of an Infrastructure portfolio moving housing away from welfare. We also supported a budget submission from People with Disability Australia (PWDA) outlining the need to boost housing for people with disability.
