Your guide to the 2020 Victorian Budget

Did the budget deliver for social policy?

The 2020 Victorian budget was one of the most significant in decades.

It represented the Victorian Government’s first comprehensive statement on our post-COVID recovery.

This page is your central hub for the budget’s social policy announcements. Our policy team will be updating the below pages over the coming weeks, telling you which social policy programs and initiatives are being funded in the budget—and what missed out.

If we’ve got something wrong please let us know. We also encourage you to sign up to VCOSS eNews and join us on TwitterFacebook and LinkedIn to stay up to date.
