Tender Details

 

In 2017/18 the NSW Government is making up to $10 million available to non-government organisations (NGOs) to provide Supported Temporary Accommodation through an Expression of Interest (EOI).

Temporary Accommodation (TA) is a critical component of the NSW Government’s response to homelessness. It provides a safety net and ensures, wherever possible, that a person experiencing homelessness can be accommodated on any given night.

 

The Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) currently uses over 350 providers across the State to provide short-term accommodation to place TA clients.  FACS uses motels, caravan parks and other low cost commercial accommodation options to place TA clients, as well as supported accommodation managed by NGOs.

 

In 2016/17 FACS supported over 24,800 homelessness clients with TA.

Over time the number and complexity of clients have increased and there is now clear recognition within both FACS and the NGO sector that TA could play a greater role in providing support as well as shelter to those experiencing homelessness.
