CEDA welcomes Housing Minister Martin Foley to discuss the Victorian Government’s social and affordable housing strategies, and new approaches to address this rising issue for Australia’s economic and social development.
The Hon. Martin Foley MP, Victorian Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing
Sofitel on Collins, 25 Collins Street, Melbourne, VIC
Lunch (12.00pm to 2.00pm)
Infrastructure Victoria estimates that between 75,000 and 100,000 vulnerable low-income households in Metropolitan Melbourne are not having their housing requirements appropriately met. With significant population growth expected in Australian cities, what is the best way to meet our future affordable housing needs?
Join the Minister, together with leaders across government, research, non-profit and private sectors, to discuss the way forward in the social and affordable housing agenda. We discuss:
- What new investment and policy changes are being made at the state and federal level;
- Competition, contestability and user choice in the social housing market; and
- How to best engage the private and community sectors in social and affordable housing investment.
