Implementing the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness in Queensland - Download the full report

 

Tabled in Parliament on 12 February 2013.

 

This is the first of our reports to be presented to Parliament in 2013, and number six for the financial year.

 

The Australian states and territory governments signed the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH) in December 2008. The aim of the NPAH is to reduce homelessness by targeting key groups. The Australian and Queensland Governments committed joint funding of $284.6 million over five years to reduce homelessness by seven per cent by 2013. Queensland's contribution is $149.5 million (52.5 per cent).

 

This audit assessed whether the department is implementing the NPAH as intended, achieving the planned outcomes and realising the expected benefits.
