What is community housing?
Community housing is subsidised housing for people on low and moderate incomes that is managed by not-for-profit agencies.
The type of stock available may range from studio apartments through to units and standalone houses. The stock is designed to accommodate a range of households from singles to large families.
Some community housing agencies specialise in particular types of housing, including:
- Aboriginal housing
- Housing for people with a disability
- Housing for women and children
- Co-operative housing
Community housing agencies are subject to government regulation through the Housing Registrar.
