A fantastic initiative involving a very generous philanthropic contribution and the collaboration of a number of Government Departments will see the construction of 57 portable homes in Footscray, to be made available for concessional rentals to low income adults and families. 

What a great precedent to set for other Government Departments and organisations around that country that have land holdings not being utilised.  We need more collaborative initiatives such as this if we are going to really tackle the affordable housing issues we have across the country.
