More Rapid Housing for Victims of Family Violence

Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing Martin Foley has announced more than $4 million in new funding for the Rapid Housing Program. Under the program, homes are leased from private owners by community housing agencies, which sublet them to women and children at below market rent.

One in 10 applicants on the Victorian Housing Register priority list identifies family violence as a reason for seeking urgent housing assistance. The Rapid Housing Program focuses on areas with high incidences of family violence and offers stable accommodation for up to 12 months.
