A landmark $36.1 million investment by the NSW government to combat chronic homelessness will enable community housing providers to launch life-changing programs for rough sleepers across the state.

Australia’s largest not-for-profit community housing provider Community Housing Ltd (CHL), which is a primary social and affordable housing provider in the Mid-North Coast, has received over $1.6 million in funding which will help transition 24 rough sleepers into long-term affordable housing in areas including Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Kempsey and Nambucca Heads.

Announced as part of the Together Home project, funding will support people who have been homeless specially during current times, to transition them into stable and secure accommodation.
