Older Australians in Hasluck will benefit from the Turnbull Government’s 2017 Federal Budget with continued funding of $5.5 billion to enable people to stay in their own homes.
Federal Minister for Aged Care and Member for Hasluck, Ken Wyatt, said that he had worked to ensure that the Commonwealth Home Support Programme was continued for two years from 1 July 2018.
The Turnbull Government is easing the cost of living for Australian families:
More Affordable Housing
“We are implementing sensible measures to make sure all Australians have affordable housing” said Mr Wyatt.
This budget includes measures to make more land available in areas well serviced by transport and jobs, crackdown on foreign investors who seek to exploit loopholes in our system and to ease the costs for young Australians looking to buy their first home.
The Turnbull Government is guaranteeing the services that Australian families rely on:
More Money for Schools
Our needs based funding model for schools, endorsed by David Gonski, is all about fairness.
Schools in every sector in the community of Hasluck will be receiving significant increases in funding because of our needs-based funding model. This is great news for our 65 primary and secondary schools and their 23,564 students.
