More than 100 new homes have been delivered in Dubbo through a NSW Government program which is reducing housing stress and providing stability and support to those most in need.
The Social and Affordable Housing Fund is a partnership between the NSW Government and community housing providers. Housing Plus and St Vincent de Paul Housing (SVdPH) are delivering new homes under the program in Dubbo.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the program is transforming the lives of those most in need by helping them break the cycle of disadvantage.
“This investment is delivering a strong pipeline of modern homes which is reducing housing stress for those most vulnerable in our community,” Mr Saunders said.
“The construction program has also significantly added to the local economy and is keeping local tradies employed, which is great for our region.”
Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Gareth Ward said dozens more affordable homes are in the construction pipeline across the region as part of the program.
“The SAHF is an innovative approach to housing, coupling quality properties with access to wraparound services such as healthcare and community assistance to help people reach their potential,” Mr Ward said.
The SAHF is a key initiative of Future Directions of Social Housing in NSW, the NSW Government’s plan to deliver more and improved social housing across the state.
