MAKE HOME OWNERSHIP POSSIBLE FOR ALL AUSTRALIANS: NOT JUST THE FORTUNATE
Approve an increase of 10,000 social housing properties to be built in NSW for those who need it the most
Ensure the National Rental Affordability Scheme is continued so that 10,000 Australians on low to moderate incomes can afford to privately rent
Abolish stamp duty in NSW with the view towards a more equitable land tax system that targets investment properties - NOT first home buyers.
Why is this important?
Because 83% of Australian's polled by Auspoll before the election thought it was more important than education, border protection and fast and affordable broadband, but they were ignored by the major parties
105,000 Australians face homelessness each night
173,000 Australians are on waiting lists for public housing
460,000 low income Australians in private rental are in housing stress
50% of home buyers are in mortgage stress
Because if you don't have affordable shelter, your ability to provide other essentials for yourself such as food, utility costs, health, and your access to education and employment are seriously compromised
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 25, states that everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services
How it will be delivered
The petition will be delivered by post and email to MP Pru Goward NSW Minister for Family and Community Services
