Public housing forum dissatisfied with Kahlon moves

The Public Housing Forum on Wednesday expressed dissatisfaction at steps by Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and Housing Minister Yoav Galant to increase public housing, saying the plans did not go nearly far enough.

Though the advocacy group welcomed their pledge to reduce wait times for 2,700 eligible public housing applicants, they said that tens of thousands of people remained without homes or help. Israel’s housing crisis, they said, affected 170,000 people, not just 2,700.
