Social housing stimulus slashed

Brown Couch readers will remember how pleasing it was when the Federal Government announced in February its $6 billion social housing stimulus.

Now it has been slashed by $750 million – about 12.5 per cent. This money will be redirected to the schools stimulus.

Unless the Scots College is proposing to rent out its newly refurbished drama rooms as housing for low-income families, this will not do.

Shelter NSW is organising the campaign to restore the cut funds. Follow that link for some ideas for your letter to the Prime Minister, the Treasurer, the Housing Minister, and your local MP.
