The SA Greens have welcomed the Malinauskas Labor Government's moves to restore funding to homelessness services and build 400 new public homes but have called for further housing investment in the next state budget.
"The Labor Government's decision to restore funding to the Hutt St Centre, Catherine House and St Vincent de Paul Society is a big win for people power. The previous Liberal Government's funding cuts were righty met with outrage by the community. The Greens welcome Labor's support for these vital services," said the SA Greens Housing Spokesperson, Robert Simms MLC.
"We also welcome the Government's boost to public housing, but 400 new public homes is simply not enough to deal with our state's housing affordability crisis. With rents continuing to soar and more South Australians living on the streets, the Greens are calling for a big investment in public housing in the first Malinauskas budget."
