Treasury is currently undertaking a five-year review of the National Affordable Housing Agreement — the agreement by the Council of Australian Governments governing housing assistance and homelessness funding that commenced in 2009. In order to prepare input for the Treasury review process, the National Affordable Housing Summit convened a roundtable meeting on August 22 to discuss priorities for a revised agreement, which was organised by our chairperson. This background paper prepared by consultant, Rebecca Richardson, for the roundtable outlines key proposals for enhancing the agreement, such as the inclusion of growth funds to deliver additional housing that is affordable to people on low incomes.
