The Federal government must finally set up a rescue programme for Social housing, otherwise, flats are a social of the past. This must not happen in the face of rent crisis and Corona crisis“, calls for Caren Lay, Deputy Chairman of the faction of THE LEFT, on the occasion of the advice of the Federal Cabinet, to report on the use of the compensation funds for social housing. Lay continues:”The Federal government is watching the demise of Social housing idly. Only in the last budget negotiations, the coalition has reduced spending for social housing support by a third. This is really scandalous. So there is no reason to point the Finger at the countries. Instead of the reduction of the Grand coalition to just 1 billion euros it needs a public housing program in the amount of 10 billion euros to 250,000 new units of social housing per year, in addition to a new building, the extension of the social ties. Once funded social housing will in future have to remain in social housing. This could be due to a new non-profit for average – and low-income earners guarantee.“Background info: last year, the number of newly built social housing decreased, with only 25.565 to 2018.

The downward trend is continuing unabated.
