Add your name and call on the NSW Government to properly support and invest in public housing, including:
- Stop the sell-off of public housing and public land for private profit
- Massively invest in building more public, social and affordable housing, so everyone on the waiting list and everyone who is homeless - can have a home
- An immediate injection of funding to address the maintenance backlog and ensure decent living conditions for all public housing tenants
Save public housing
Everyone deserves access to a safe and secure home. But successive Liberal and Labor governments have sold off public housing for private profit while starving the upkeep and maintenance of funding.
The public housing waiting list has blown out of control, with some people waiting up to 10 years for a home on the public housing waiting list.
And many people who are living in public housing are dealing with ongoing challenges around safety and maintenance, living with leaking roofs, broken stoves, mould, rats and dodgy plumbing.
The Greens believe housing should be a universal right. Just like Medicare and our public school system, everyone should be able to have access to public, community or affordable housing if they need it.
We want to see investment in public housing so that everyone on the waiting list has a home and all public housing properties are properly maintained.
