Submission: ACTCOSS Budget Priorities 2015-16

Publication date: 
October 2014

The ACTCOSS submission to the ACT Budget 2015-16 includes key asks around affordable housing and homelessness that community sector organisations have come together to promote. We collectively believe ongoing investment will underpin and facilitate genuinely better and more sustainable outcomes for disadvantaged Canberrans in the areas government has identified as priorities for action in its Budget Strategy.

Our members have also identified three areas of urgent need that we advise the government to invest in as a matter of priority:

Accessible services and community infrastructure

Prevention, early intervention and targeted assistance

Reorienting and prioritising service delivery in the context of whole-of-community roll out of the NDIS
