Lendlease opens homelessness and housing grants

28 Jul 2020

Coinciding with Homelessness Week in August, Docklands developer Lendlease will put the call out to not-for-profits providing solutions to housing stress and homelessness to apply for a grant via its shared value initiative FutureSteps.

Through a combination of grants up to $200,000, the program seeks to empower vulnerable people by partnering with established not-for-profit organisations to boost the availability of quality accommodation and support services in the community, and by investing in targeted skilling, training and jobs programs.

The grants will be open to organisations who are committed to directly increasing the supply of accommodation for individuals or families experiencing homelessness or housing stress in Victoria, NSW and Queensland.

Since its establishment in December 2018, FutureSteps has already provided over $300,000 in grants to not-for-profits in NSW and Victoria.

“With the values of sustainability and collaboration at its core, FutureSteps will foster long-term relationships with grant recipients, providing the resources and skills needed to build an organisation’s capacity for a lasting impact,” Lendlease CEO of property Australia and FutureSteps advisory committee chair Kylie Rampa said.

The FutureSteps grant program will be open for applications between August 3 and 28 •
