“The four housing projects in Sydney’s south saw 176 construction jobs created, which demonstrates that an investment in social housing is also an investment in jobs that support so many local families.”
Ms Brill said the Government’s investment in social housing was a key pillar of the state’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The new homes at Kingsgrove and Hurstville were funded under a $250 million state-wide program to fast-track the delivery of new social housing, but the benefits go well beyond bricks and mortar,” Ms Brill said.
“With plans to deliver up to 3,200 social housing properties over the next five years, we’re giving people in need a place to call home, creating jobs, generating business for local suppliers, and keeping the economy moving.”
