Pre-Budget Submission 2021-22

National Shelter has released its Budget Submission for 2021/22; in it we welcome the Federal Government’s consolidation of housing responsibilities into a single Housing Minister - The Hon Michael Sukkar MP, and we look forward to an opportunity to meet the Minister to outline our submission in the near future and discuss the need for federal investment. The principal asks remain:

- Federal support for the SHARP proposal and the Housing Booster (affordable housing supply subsidy) project
- The need for tax

National Shelter Response to the Treasurer’s Call for Pre-Budget Submissions 2020-21

National Shelter urges the government and all parties to commit to a national plan and strategy to address affordable housing in Australia and enable governments, the private and community sectors to work together to solve the current affordable housing crisis.

Budget 2020-21 Analysis

The 29-year run of GDP growth in Australia has now ended with the 2020 recession. While much of the growth run was driven initially by productivity gains and micro and macroeconomic reforms, over the past decade it’s been driven more by population growth.

Social Housing Acceleration and Renovation Program (SHARP)

At this difficult time the Government’s emergency measures to support businesses and workers will bring much-needed relief to many Australians. Equally, it’s imperative that we plan now for a government-driven stimulus program to kickstart our country’s post-crisis recovery. This will be vital in getting people back into jobs fast, and also in enhancing building company confidence to retain workers.
