With the creation of Homes Victoria and the launch of the Big Housing Build it has never been more important for government policy makers to understand community housing. This course will give participants an overview of the community housing sector, including:

  • Similarities and differences between public and community housing
  • The business model of community housing
  • How the sector is funded and regulated
  • The difference between affordable and social housing
  • How community housing organisations allocate housing using the VHR
  • How community housing organisations grow their portfolios (before and during the Big Housing Build)
  • CHIA Vic – who we are, what we do
  • How we work with government
