Social Impact Investments – Tackling Homelessness

The Office of Social Impact Investment (OSII) on behalf of the NSW Government is seeking innovative partnerships that will invest in earlier intervention to improve social outcomes in complex issue areas. This Request for Proposal (RFP) presents an opportunity to deliver outcomes-focused solutions to addressing Homelessness.

Absolute growth in homelessness over the last decade has been significant. To address this unsustainable trend, the NSW Government is seeking social impact investment proposals that test innovative prevention and early intervention models to prevent people exiting government services into homelessness.

The NSW Government is also interested in building the evidence base of ‘what works’ in prevention and early intervention so that effective interventions can be scaled. For these reasons, there is interest in tackling homelessness through social impact investments.

As part of the NSW Budget 2018-19, $20 million of new funding over four years was allocated to this social impact investment opportunity as part of the NSW Department of Family and Community Services’ (FACS) NSW Homelessness Strategy.
