ACT Government unveils Common Ground to target homelessness

Common Ground shows us what can be achieved when government, business, the community sector and the wider community work together for such a great cause.

The ACT Government has today unveiled Common Ground in Gungahlin, a unique housing project designed to tackle homelessness in Canberra.

 

The Government has invested $13 million into the project, which provides 20 units for people experiencing homelessness, and a further 20 units offered as affordable rental accommodation.

 

Common Ground would not have been possible without the support of the community, businesses and organisations in the area. This is a collaborative project, and I must particularly thank the board of Common Ground Canberra, Northside Community Service, Argyle, Ikea Canberra and the Snow Foundation for their support.

 

Common Ground shows us what can be achieved when government, business, the community sector and the wider community work together for such a great cause.

 

The project was an item in the Labor-Greens Parliamentary Agreement.
