More Houses for Tasmania!

We secured 1,200 Homes for Tasmania! Tasmania’s Housing Crisis demands urgent attention. After tireless efforts, I managed to secure Labor’s promise to provide 1,200 homes for our state. It may not seem like much, but it’s a start. Now, here’s why that matters: Tasmania is home to 4 percent of the people in Australia who need social housing the most*, and 1,200 represents 4 per cent of the houses the fund, I was asking for our fair share! But the fate of these homes hinges on the Greens’ support. Your voice to join ours made the Greens to stand with us and endorse this historic investment in Tasmania’s affordable housing. Together, we took a step further to make sure every Tasmanian has a safe and secure place to call home.

Past Campaign

Labor’s Housing Fund initially promised around 600 homes for Tasmania out of 30,000, but they were never guaranteed, funded, or sufficient. That’s where my efforts came in, resulting in Labor’s commitment to allocate 1,200 homes for Tasmania. However, I needed the Greens’ support to make it a reality. While they were advocating for more homes on the mainland, my focus is on Tasmanians. If every home goes where it’s needed most, Tasmania needed 4 percent, not robbing other states of their needs. Without this guarantee, other states could have received more than their fair share. I got once-in-a-generation investment in Tasmania’s affordable housing, and the Greens’ were opposing to seal the deal. With your word we reminded your green senators in Tasmania that they represent you.

We finally got a deal! Our advocacy and your unwavering support have paid off! At the start of August 2023, the legislation I’ve been passionately fighting for was successfully voted on and passed. Even more exciting, the Greens have come on board to support this essential legislation, a game-changing moment made possible by the dedication and advocacy of over 500 incredible individuals like you. This victory belongs to all of us! Together, we’ve ensured that every Tasmanian has a safe and secure place to call home.
