The Victorian Government will provide access to safe and secure accommodation.
The 2017/18 Budget includes investments for:
Support another 2,200 new social housing places over the next 5 years, through our $1 billion Social Housing Growth Fund.
$100 million to fund low-cost loans and $1 billion in government guarantees to housing associations, to enable them to substantially expand their stock.
$20 million investment to upgrade rooming houses in both the government and community sectors to support Victorians in need.
$3 million will be provided to transfer management of 4,000 public housing dwellings to community housing agencies, which are better placed to respond to the individual needs of each and every family.
