Calls for the expansion of supply of affordable rental housing

Foundation Housing CEO, Kathleen Gregory was invited to speak at a Committee for Economic Development of Australia conference that coincided with its major new report on Housing in Australia.

Kathleen’s presentation focused on the difficulties being faced by low income groups, particularly low income renters, and argued that housing policy needs to focus on increasing the supply of affordable rental housing to these cohorts through expansion of the social housing system and specialist ‘NRAS’ like programmes designed to attract private capital into the affordable housing space.
