Almost 20,000 public housing units to be transferred to not-for-profits

Public housing units across the northern suburbs of Sydney are some of the 18,000 dwellings to be transferred to the control of community housing providers from next year.

And housing providers are hopeful they will be able to use income raised from the transfer, announced by the Baird government on Thursday, to build extra social and affordable housing dwellings across the city and state.
