More homes for Community Housing Providers

Published

The Northern territory (NT) Government is imagining a new beginning for community housing in the Territory.

Community Housing Providers (CHP) are not-for-profit organisations that manage social and affordable housing and undertake all asset and tenancy management. They have a strong track record of providing high-quality tenancy management and achieving overall high levels of tenant satisfaction. They also have a commitment to achieving broader social welfare objectives and often provide tenants with specialised services and contribute to improved neighbourhood amenity.

To grow this sector in the Territory, we’re developing a Community Housing Growth Strategy and undertaking economic modelling to inform how we transfer up to 40 per cent of urban public housing to community housing providers by 2030.

However, work to grow the sector is already well underway. This month we transferred 12 public housing units to TeamHEALTH, a registered CHP who will deliver a high level of service for tenants. In addition to traditional landlord responsibilities, TeamHEALTH will offer bespoke mental health, relationship and employment support.

We know housing plays a key role in broader welfare outcomes such as health and education. Providing vulnerable Territorians with quality housing and supports not only benefits them, but also has flow on effects for the wider community.
