This bulletin provides a summary of ACT Council of Social Service (ACTCOSS) responses to the 2022-23 ACT Budget announced on 2 August 2022.
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 has welcomed funding in the ACT Budget for housing, health and the ACT community sector but said more is needed to support Canberrans struggling as the cost of living skyrockets.
