Funding Options Paper updated for distributionIntroduction
The original version of this paper was produced in December 2019 at the invitation of the Associate Minister of Housing (Public Housing) for consideration and input into work being undertaken to review the current funding settings.

To help kick-start the economy and keep people employed the Government is progressing a number of ‘shovel ready’ construction projects. Predominantly the projects that are currently being advanced are horizontal infrastructure projects.
