SOCIAL HOUSING ECONOMIC RECOVERY PACKAGE
583. Hon Dr BRAD PETTITT to the Leader of the House
representing the Minister for Housing:
I refer to the minister's
media statement on 24 August 2021 titled ''$93 million in grants to be made
available to community housing across WA''.
(1) Are all the
grant funding commitments funded under the $444 million social housing economic
recovery package, otherwise known as SHERP,
announced on 7 June 2020; and, if not, what funding does not come from
(2) How much of the $444 million
referred to in (1) remains to be allocated?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of this question.
(1) Yes. In June
2020, the state government announced the $444 million housing stimulus package
to aid the state's recovery, comprising $319 million for the social
housing economic recovery package, or SHERP.
(2) All SHERP funds are allocated.
