Boost for Clarence homeless

CLARENCE Valley homelessness services will receive part of an $8.6-million increase to the Service Support Fund per year until June 2017.

The Service Support Fund was established to help specialist homelessness services providers that were unsuccessful in the Going Home Staying Home tender to deliver additional and complimentary services.

The additional funding added to the existing $148-million annual investment into specialist homelessness services.

Extension of Service Support Fund funding is dependent on organisations demonstrating satisfactory performance in their annual performance review.

Any funding beyond June 30 2017 will be subject to service planning on the basis of client and district need.
