Public housing can be crisis housing, short-term housing or long-term housing supplied by the government or by private providers. The terms vary from state to state, but essentially this is housing that is rented at a percentage of the income of the tenant, rather than at market value.
If you have experienced value from what I am doing, please consider making a donation. I do have an Australian pension to live on, but as we all know, this is no longer enough to pay rent, which means I am always living in transient accommodation. Every little bit counts.
