The 'COVID-19 Amendment to homelessness services guidelines and conditions of funding' has been released today to assist homelessness services when responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Homelessness service providers should consider these guidelines, alongside other materials provided by the Department of Human Services (Victoria) and the Department of Health (Commonwealth) to determine how COVID-19 may impact their service, their residents or clients and their workforce and use those insights to determine further planning and preparedness.

The COVID-19 Amendment to homelessness services guidelines and conditions of funding will become a temporary amendment to the Homelessness services guidelines and conditions of funding (May 2014).
