A very exciting night is fast approaching…Federal Budget night!

It’s the time of the year when the Treasurer works with the rest of the Government to put together their plan for the year ahead. They decide where they’re going to spend the money and the kind of things they’re going to invest – and we want them to have Australia’s housing system front of mind as they’re developing this plan!

 Which is why we’re asking you to send Treasurer Scott Morrison an email now using the simple tool on the right, to ask him to invest in fixing Australia’s housing system this Federal Budget.

We’re asking Treasurer Scott Morrison to:

  • Reduce the negative gearing and capital gains tax breaks to investors that cost more than $11 billion annually
  • Use the money saved to deliver social and affordable housing so people on low and middle incomes can have a place to call home
  • Continue critical funding for remote Indigenous housing that runs out in June 2018
  • Increase funding for homeless help services, so that the 250 people turned away from services every day can get the help they need
  • Increase Commonwealth Rent Assistance, to give struggling renters more help to make ends meet in private rental

These are all achievable solutions. If the Treasurer includes these measures in the Budget, it will make an incredible difference to the lives of Australians right across the country – Australians who just need a place to call home.

 

Which is why it’s so important that the Treasurer hears from you. He needs to know that Australians desperately want this broken housing system fixed – will you send him an email now?
