NIPSA seeks commitments from the Housing Minister to fully support and fund the NIHE as the leading and largest public sector social housing provider across NI.

NIPSA Assistant Secretary Kim Smyth has written to the Department for Communities Minister, Gordon Lyons, seeking assurances that the NIHE would not be privatised and that a new funding model which permits the NIHE to borrow, as in other jurisdictions and housing organisations, can be introduced to ensure the future success of the Housing Executive.
