Federal Budget 2020/21 Submission

Prior to the 2020/21 Federal Budget being handed down, Mallee Family Care made an extensive submission to the Government, outlining the key issues the Agency believes need to be prioritised. In summary, we called for the Government to:
  • Invest in social housing by funding a national social housing construction program
  • Increase Commonwealth Rent Assistance
  • Enact all 27 recommendations of the Senate Community Affairs Reference Committee Report into the Adequacy of Newstart (JobSeeker)
  • Cease planning for expansion of Cashless Debit Card
  • Implement and fund Place-based Policy
  • Prevent funding cuts to existing community services
