Shelter WA congratulates the McGowan Government on its fourth budget. Having a safe and secure home and building the homes so nobody is left behind is critical not only to keeping everybody safe but to drive economic and social recovery.
Additional $30 million boost to the Building Bonus program to meet the higher than expected demand for the successful COVID-19 stimulus measure.
The package includes $117 million for $20,000 Building Bonus grants and $8.2 million for the expansion of the 75 per cent off-the-plan transfer duty rebate scheme.
Shelter WA is pleased to see that the State Government has responded positively to the recommendations of the inquiry into short-stay accommodation.
Shelter WA appeared at the Legislative Assembly’s Economics and Industry Standing Committee’s Inquiry into Short-Stay Accommodation to outline its submission to Members of the Committee conducting an inquiry.
Shelter WA is pleased to see that the majority of our recommendations in our two submissions, as well as our public hearing evidence have been incorporated into the Committee’s final report.
