Services of community housing
There are over 140 not-for-profit community housing providers across NSW that provide housing assistance to eligible people on low incomes or who are unable to access appropriate housing in the private market. This includes social housing, affordable housing and supported housing.
Community housing providers work with a range of partners, including DCJ, other non-government organisations, local councils, and private sector partners to develop, deliver and manage these housing products. They receive funds from DCJ and lease properties owned by LAHC for these purposes.
Some larger providers are developing their own housing stock and have fee-for-service arrangements with private entities to manage properties and tenancies.
25 community housing providers participate in the Housing Pathways multi-provider access system, in partnership with DCJ, and allocate properties from the NSW Housing Register.
