Help us understand the issues contributing to housing stress and homelessness in Australia

7 August 2023National Housing and Homelessness Plan - Public consultation is now open

To help more Australians access safe and affordable housing, the Australian Government is developing a National Housing and Homelessness Plan (the Plan) in collaboration with state and territory governments. The Plan will be a 10-year strategy. It will set out a shared vision to inform future housing and homelessness policy in Australia.

The Plan will set out the key short, medium and longer term reforms needed to address housing challenges.

The Australian Government has released an Issues Paper on Housing and Homelessness in Australia. The Issues Paper provides a brief overview of some of the known issues in different parts of the housing and homelessness systems and poses a series of discussion questions. To share your views and help support long-term change for people experiencing housing stress or homelessness, visit the Engage website.

Submissions close 11.59pm AEST Friday 22 September 2023.
