We have a crisis of affordable housing. Many young people will never be able to buy a home, rents are too expensive and public housing waiting lists grow longer and longer.
9 new jobs are created for every additional million dollars we spend on new home construction
The Greens plan includes:
- Build a million new, affordable, accessible and sustainable new homes to clear public housing waiting lists, make housing more affordable, end homelessness, and ensure everyone has a roof over their head
- Improve existing homes with $7 billion in capital grants to make homes warmer in winter and cooler in summer
- Create 45,000 new ongoing direct jobs in construction and an additional 90,000 indirect jobs in the broader economy
