In NSW the Community Housing Providers take 100% of the CRA from their Tenants, this was not always the case and I have been told that originally it was to be 35% but just changed to the 100%…..my questions is “Where does this money go?” There is very little Social Housing being built in Sydney & I cannot figure this out at all.

On September 2nd I have been invited to attend the REDWatch Meeting with the Tenants of Waterloo Public Housing Estate that is currently being sold off and I have been invited to talk to them about Community Housing, the differences and what they can expect.
