Labor's Jennifer Kanis says there is growing concern amongst public housing tenants about proposed state government changes to public housing.
Ms Kanis has been attending housing forums in the inner-north, last week taking part in a North Melbourne forum.
She said the forums were aimed at giving people a say on a new state government discussion paper that mooted a rent increase for tenants and limited tenure.
She said tenants that met public housing criteria should not be kicked out after a set time.
"These are people who can't get into the private market," she said.
