Parliamentary Questions

Question Without Notice No. 583 asked in the Legislative Council on 31 August 2021 by Hon Dr Brad Pettitt

Parliament: 41 Session: 1


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 SHERP?

(2) How much of the $444 million referred to in (1) remains to be allocated?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

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.
