Pathways out of Homelessness Grant Program

On 23 August 2019, the Lord Mayor announced a new grants program. 

The Pathways out of Homelessness Grant Program will provide $1 million per annum for three years to enable new, innovative and sustainable solutions to address the growing community issue of homelessness.

Purpose

Key areas of need may include:

  • employment and certified training courses
  • delivery of integrated, off-street support services
  • mental health support
  • storage of rough sleeper belongings, including identification documents
  • support for vulnerable people to successfully sustain tenancies.
