HOMES for Homes is opening a new funding round for social and affordable housing projects, with up to $200,000 available in the ACT.
Homes for Homes provides a way for the entire community to help solve the issue of homelessness, by raising funds for social and affordable housing through donations from property sales.
CEO Steven Persson said the new funding round will contribute to the creation of social and affordable housing.
“With a shortfall of 600,000 social and affordable houses, Homes for Homes is a long-term generational solution that gives those experiencing homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage the freedom, independence and stability of secure housing,” Persson said. “These last few months have shown us that more than ever, a lasting solution to homelessness is needed in Australia. As our funding round coincides with Homelessness Week, we notice a great enthusiasm amongst the public to see tangible solutions to solving this issue,”
This is the third time Homes for Homes has released funds in the ACT.
