Roles of government in providing social and affordable housing
Addressing homelessness is a priority for the City of Melbourne.We’re working in partnership with people who are experiencing homelessness, support and service agencies, businesses, Victoria police, and the Victorian and Australian Governments to reduce homelessness in Melbourne.
Our three main aims are to:
- work with our partners to help provide long-term supportive housing
- partner with health, welfare, housing services and outreach to coordinate service delivery for rough sleepers
- support women and children at risk of family violence to secure services and safe accommodation.
The table below outlines our role in helping to provide social and affordable housing alongside the roles of the Australian and Victorian Governments:
