    Flood’s Law – Any subsidy will go largely to the most powerful group eligible for it. There is a gross shortage of affordable housing, not of silvertails who want to Cape Cod their residence.

    • Hi Joe, I agree it doesn’t seem to be targetted at groups that seriously need it. That’s why I think the government on this one is really thinking of how they can stimulate an industry, rather than assisting individuals. They do restrict it to couples under $200k p.a. income and singles under $125k – which means it shouldn’t go to the very rich – but I do wonder how many people on lesser incomes can afford to drop $150k+ on a renovation anyway.
