This Strategy is being developed to support disadvantaged households and to advocate for more affordable housing development.
The Strategy supports homeless and low-income households, funding from the State and Federal Governments, and Affordable Housing in new residential developments.
It also talks about shortfalls of housing such as one and two bedroom dwellings.
Future work will focus on young people, older people, women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and people with a disability who struggle to get affordable housing.
