Two Inquiries into Affordable Housing

06 Jan 2014

There are currently two similar inquiries into affordable housing.

One is a Federal inquiry by the Senate Economics References Committee into Affordable Housing. The Terms of Reference for this Inquiry can be found here and written submissions are due by 25 March 2014. The Mercy Foundation knows that lack of affordable housing supply creates homelessness and that structural measures by the government are needed to address this situation. This is an important opportunity to contribute to this important discussion.

The other Inquiry is by the NSW Parliament and is looking at Social, Public and Affordable Housing. Information about this Inquiry, including the Terms of Reference, can be found here. Written submissions are due by 28 February 2014.
