The McGowan Government is bringing forward funds earmarked in a $150 million housing investment package to help maintain a pipeline of work for local tradies and building businesses. The immediate focus of the stimulus, originally scheduled to begin in 2020-21, is on refurbishing 70 homes across the metropolitan and regional areas. Construction of up to 500 social and affordable homes will come on line as the package unfolds. Housing Minister Peter Tinley announced the move to boost the residential construction sector following calls for greater certainty of ongoing work in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
