The Coalition Government’s recent Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO) has confirmed that the Federal Budget will return to surplus in 2019-20. Returning to surplus is no accident. The Government has spent five years cleaning up Labor’s mess. This is part of the Coalition Government’s plan to keep the economy strong and to guarantee the essential services that Australians rely on.
Mental health care for young Australians is set for a $51.8 million funding boost. The Coalition Government’s extra investment in the national network of headspace centres and the digital portal, eheadspace, means young people will have access to around 14,000 additional services, shorter wait times and extra clinical staff.
The Morrison Government will invest $52 million to protect Australian teenagers, including those in Casey against meningococcal, with the launch of a new free national program for 14 to 19 year olds. Over 1 million teenagers will receive the free meningococcal A, C, W and Y vaccine, over the next four years.
The Turnbull Government has delivered income tax relief for hard-working Australian families commencing in the 2018-19 financial year. In Casey, almost 65,000 taxpayers will be rewarded for their hard work both now and into the future.
