The state budget has been slammed for ignoring the needs of many Tasmanians doing it tough.
Tasmanian Council of Social Service chief executive Kym Goodes said this budget was not the game-changing one Tasmania needed.
"Thursday's budget shows us the state government is in denial of the fact that people in this state are falling behind faster than we've ever seen before," Ms Goodes said.
"Solving entrenched Tasmanian issues such as unemployment and poverty is not simple, but it is possible.
"The Tasmanian government can build hard infrastructure, but if we don't invest in supporting Tasmanian job seekers to get local jobs, we're not ensuring everyone can share in the state's prosperity."
Shelter Tasmania chair Andrea Witt said what was concerning was the lack of real measures to address the volume of people requiring housing services.
$20 million has been brought forward to the 2019-20 and 2020-21 budgets from the forward estimates, as part of Stage Two of the Affordable Housing Strategy, however, there was little additional funding accounted in the budget to address housing stress.
"Until we see a reduction in need, we really need those services boosted to reduce demand," Ms Witt said.
"Any of the funding that has been made available is predominantly looking at capital. What that means is it's going to take time to get that on the ground and we still will see Tasmanians living in environments that are unacceptable."
Housing Minister Roger Jaensch announced earlier this week the government had heavily front-ended the delivery of Stage Two to bring the total allocation in the 2019 - 20 budget to $40.5 million.
This leaves $35 million for the 2020 - 21 budget, 25 million for 2021 - 22 and 5 million for the final year of the strategy in 2022 - 23.
"Bringing forward this considerable investment is just one way we are building more homes for Tasmanians in need, faster," Mr Jaensch said .
Neighbourhood Houses will receive an additional $45,000 per year to ensure they continue to deliver assistance and support across the network.
National Disability Services state manager Will Kestin said the lack of funding for disability services was highly disappointing.
"We have got providers, close to 40 per cent of our sector, who made a loss last year. Without state government support we will see market failure," Mr Kestin said.
Due to the roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the majority of existing specialist disability services will no longer be directly funded by the state government, however, Tasmanian Autism Diagnostic Services will receive $1 million.
The state will invest more than $1 billion over the forward estimates into the NDIS.
"We'd like the state government to realise that the bilateral agreement expects the states to continue to support this sector, outside of the NDIS," Mr Kestin said.
$850,000 will be invested in implementing key actions under an updated Tasmanian Elder Abuse Prevention Strategy, including a community awareness campaign, a new website to streamline referral pathways and training tools for sector workers.
Tasmania's Out of Home Care system will receive additional funding of $16.9 million to meet the growth in demand for children placed in foster care, with kinship carers or other organisations that provide a specialised service.
Office of the Commissioner for Children and Young People will receive an $112,000 per year for resources to support its work promoting the rights and wellbeing of young people.
The Youth Network of Tasmania will be funded $25,000 in 2019 - 20 and 2021-22 to support the Tasmania Youth Conference.
