The Tenants’ Union of Tasmania receives the least funding of any tenant advocacy service in Australia. From the State and Commonwealth Governments we receive $7.83 per rental household compared to $14.94 in Queensland, $16.34 in the Northern Territory, $16.46 in New South Wales and $19.08 in Victoria.

Yesterday, in a submission to the Department of Treasury and Finance we asked for an additional $95,000 per annum which will still make us the least funded tenant advocacy service in Australia but will go a long way to meeting increased demand in Northern Tasmania.
