ACTCOSS ACT Budget Priorities 2024-25

24 April 2024

This submission to the 2024-25 ACT Budget process comes at a time when the ACT faces a number of critical challenges. While the ACT has the highest average weekly earnings in Australia, when we look beyond the average we see that the cost of living in Canberra means many households cannot afford the fundamentals of a healthy life.

In ACTCOSS’s submission, we call for the 2024-25 ACT Budget to:

  • urgently address the growing housing crisis
  • support and enable the community sector to respond to increasing disadvantage caused by rising costs of living
  • prioritise self-determination and community control for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
