In ACTCOSS’s submission we call for the 2021-22 ACT Budget to work towards a fair and just Canberra through:
- A sustainable recovery from the social, health and economic shock of COVID-19.
- Adequate funding for community sector organisations.
- Addressing the ACT’s ongoing housing crisis.
- Reducing inequality and supporting increased numbers of Canberrans receiving income support.
- Improving outcomes for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Our submission outlines asks across 15 priority areas supported by evidence and data.
