Community housing is social and affordable housing for people on very low to moderate incomes. This type of housing is owned or managed by a community housing organisation. These organisations are generally not-for-profit.
Community housing organisations are registered under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing that aims to ensure a well-governed, well-managed and viable sector.
Territory Families, Housing and Communities is working in partnership with the community housing sector to deliver a contemporary and sophisticated social and affordable housing system. Community housing providers may be assisted by the agency through a combination of funding initiatives and policies that aim to support their viability.
Community housing providers are able to deliver more cost effective housing services because they are able to access a diverse range of funding streams including:
- tax exemptions
- Commonwealth Rent Assistance
- Specialist Disability Accommodation
- National Housing Finance Investment Corporation.
The community housing sector has a strong and recognised track record of providing high quality tenancy management and achieving overall high tenant satisfaction.
Territory Families, Housing and Communities is committed to supporting the growth and development of the community housing sector with the release of a growth strategy and commencement of transfer opportunities in 2021-22.
