The Victorian Government’s announcement of a $1 billion Social Housing Growth Fund is a most welcome contribution to the urgent need for more social housing and assistance to low income households.

The Victorian Government’s announcement of a $1 billion Social Housing Growth Fund is a most welcome contribution to the urgent need for more social housing and assistance to low income households.

It shows the kind of leadership that is required but is sadly lacking from the Turnbull Government.

Instead of indulging in daily thought bubbles, the Turnbull Government should be working with the States and Territories to make a long-term commitment to the National Affordable Housing Agreement.

Victoria’s Social Housing Growth Fund is an example of what can be achieved by a government that takes housing affordability seriously. The Turnbull Government should follow suit.
