Tenant advice service saved

SENATOR for Queensland John Hogg today announced the Federal Government will provide $3.3 million in emergency funding for the Queensland Tenant Advice and Advocacy Service (TAAS), a service scrapped by the Newman Government.

The TAAS offers essential advice and advocacy services to tenants across Queensland, including in the Gladstone region, providing assistance to 80,000 households annually.

On July 24, all 23 services funded through the TAAS were sent notice of withdrawal of funding by the Newman Government, effective 31 October.
