Midlas are proud to release our pre-submission for the 2019-2010 Federal budget. Midlas fosters a positive environment of building resilience for those in need, seeking to sustainably improve the quality of life for all individuals.
We believe it is by investing in our people and our community that we thrive, and therefore invite the government to review our suggestions for how we might do this:
- $250, 000 per year of community legal centre funding for Midland under the National Partnerships Agreement
- Offer 5 year funding contracts and preferred provider status to enable not-for-profit organisations to plan effectively, and retain staff
- Increase the rate of Newstart to offer all Australian a fair go
- Implement a vacancy tax for empty residential properties
