Media Release: Housing shortage and climate events – cascading and gendered impacts that the federal budget can help fix

The Equality Rights Alliance (ERA) has called for a massive increase in funding for social housing in this month’s federal budget as Australians increasingly feel the impacts of climate events.

“We urge the Commonwealth to meet its responsibility to low-income Australians with a
new Social Housing Future Fund to increase supply of affordable housing. The fund should be part of a new National Housing and Homelessness Strategy that addresses these critical gaps in Australia’s adaptation plans around climate change,” said Ms Helen Dalley-Fisher.
