Does anyone know more about this? Are public housing rents in Victoria being doubled?

I've just received note of the new rent i am required to pay to DHS. Firstly the amount i would expect to pay fortnightly is stated as my weekly rent. Great, can everyone pls check their letters, to see if that mistake is replicated. I would expect that many are also getting these letters today or this week. HOWEVER the letters also state that "the Victorian Government pays for a portion of your rent, so that you pay a reduced amount of rent." WRONG, WRONG WRONG. Public housing is not subsidised, the full market rent exists only as a figure on paper. NO aCTUAL SUBSIDY EXISTS IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM. WE ARE NOT A DRAIN ON THE PUBLIC PURSE. VICTORIAN PUBLIC HOUSING MAKES A PROFIT OF $100 MILLION ANNUALLY FROM OUR RENTS. I will be writing to the Director and Minister Foley pointing out this toxic propaganda must cease. Hope everyone else who's across this issue does the same.
