The development of the Victorian Housing Register has been proceeding well but it has been missing a vital piece of enabling policy. The community housing allocations framework was finally released in late August for a three-week consultation period. DHHS and CHFV ran a forum for community housing organisations on Monday to work through the key elements of the framework.
At face value, the policy may seem straightforward but its various layers provide for a fundamental and complex change to business practices for the sector.
CHFV, and each community housing organisation, will be analysing the implications of this policy reform on their mission, their business model and viability, and will be providing feedback to DHHS by 15 September.
