Financing Housing Supply

6 December 2016

Housing affordability is an important component of overall housing wellbeing, and it is because the state government has fiscal (taxation and spending) powers that can influence what households and businesses do, that the State Budget is so important. This set of proposals highlights important measures we would like to see in the State Budget for 2017-18.

It also includes some nonfiscal proposals. This is because other state government agencies apart from NSW Treasury influence people’s housing circumstances.
