Housing for people on low incomes must be a priority of NSW flood disaster recovery

Homelessness NSW has released a joint statement with NCOSS, CHIA NSW and ACHIA calling on the NSW Government to fund a significant and immediate housing recovery package to address both the short term and long term impact of the floods in NSW with a request to:

  • Establish immediate temporary housing options for people on low incomes,
  • Prioritise the rebuilding of existing social housing affected by the floods,
  • Invest in additional social and affordable housing to address the critical shortage of housing in the flood impacted areas, and
  • Make recovery grants immediately available to local community housing, Aboriginal and homelessness services to assist people made homeless as a result of the floods.
