Program objectives

The Community Housing Innovation Fund (CHIF) is open to all registered CHPs (including those that are eligible to register) and aims to encourage regional and smaller providers, who may not have had the opportunity or capacity to participate in large-scale tenders, to activate their financial and other resources to initiate projects.

The objectives of the CHIF are to:

  • Increase the supply of housing by leveraging Government funds with CHPs’ access to a range of financial and non-financial resources.
  • Encourage innovative tenancy and property proposals that enhance tenants’ social housing outcomes using the range of partnerships that CHPs have in their communities.
  • Ensure community housing sector diversity by encouraging regional and smaller scale CHPs to participate in the program.
  • Secure the longer-term viability of the community housing sector by increasing the size and value of the CHP owned portfolio.
