This bulletin provides a summary of ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS) responses to the 2021-22 ACT Budget announced on 6 October 2021.
The bulletin summarises key announcements for community service organisations and Canberrans on low incomes and facing disadvantage. It also includes a list of measures about which ACTCOSS will be requesting more information. Lastly, it highlights gaps that are not addressed in this Budget.
In summary, ACTCOSS believes that there is more to be done, but the 2021-22 ACT Budget is a good basis for the shared work of Government and the community sector as we recover from the COVID-19 health and economic crisis.
