Webinar: Social Housing Economic Recovery Package

Webinar: Social Housing Economic Recovery Package

Description

WALGA will be hosting a webinar to provide information on the eligibility requirements and the application process for the Social Housing Economic Recovery Package (SHERP) grants funded by the Department of Communities.
 
The $319 million package is part of the State Government’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan announced in June 2021.
 
The Program aims to provide safe and secure housing outcomes for vulnerable Western Australians by supporting the construction of new community housing properties and the refurbishment of existing properties to extend their useful life or increase their capacity. Grants are also available to fund maintenance works within remote Aboriginal communities.
 
Local Governments are eligible to apply for SHERP grants and partner with existing social housing providers and community groups within their communities.
 
The next round of SHERP funding opens on Monday, 1 September 2021.
 
For further information please contact Kelly McManus, Principal Policy and Advocacy, WALGA on 0429 483 273 or email kmcmanus@walga.asn.au.
