Transitional National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness
On 9 December 2016, the Commonwealth announced $117.2 million to support front-line services addressing homelessness. The Transitional NPAH, from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018, will continue to prioritise funding to services providing support to women and children experiencing domestic or family violence, and homeless young people until the new National Housing and Homelessness Agreement comes into effect.
The Transitional NPAH gives priority to frontline services focusing on women and children experiencing domestic and family violence, and homeless youth. States and territories retain responsibility for determining where services are located, which service providers are contracted, and the amount of funding each service provider receives.
