There is a popular funding base behind service providers to pay for a person homeless in one city or state to be re-located to another city or state.
It is available in many cities around the world as a way of decreasing the number of homeless people in one city or state or even country if you are in Europe and homeless.
Often service providers build in some supposed ethic behind the policy such as the candidate must have reasonable opportunity for a better situation such as accommodation at their community of origin. Some cities are plain shameless and will just pay for you to move out of their back yard.
It's a cheap way to travel if you just want to get around and a quick fix if you need to exit stage left from a criminal jurisdiction or move because of weather.
If you are street homeless in Australia and come across a service provider that offers this and need to travel I have (cough) lied for clients (what? who said that... is there... hang on you are breaking up....) to affirm they would have accommodation in another state. Use and abuse the system I say if you need to move and can't afford it.
One barrier to check before you travel is having the right I.D. for the mode of travel.
Learn what the rules are to qualify, who fits the criteria of their program then fit that criteria.
articleLANCASTER, Calif. - Andrea and Greg Killgore were living on the streets in Las Vegas when they decided to relocate to Lancaster in early March. They thought their job prospects would be better in California.
But they were unable to find work and feared they would end up back on the streets.
Before long, they were on a bus headed to Denver, where a relative had agreed to take them in. To their surprise, a local nonprofit group had agreed to pay for their one-way ticket out of town.
Since January, Grace Resource Center has offered to cover transportation expenses for homeless people to return to their home states or wherever they have family or other means of support. So far the group has spent about $2,500 to help more than a dozen people leave Lancaster through the Opportunity Bus Pass Program.
