This research investigated the funding and delivery of programs to reduce homelessness in Australia, providing the first comprehensive examination of the funding of Specialist Homelessness Services and other services assisting those experiencing homelessness. It found current levels of funding are below levels required to meet client demand, and that any additional funding sources supplement, not replace, government funding.
