Help to access NHFIC funds

Did you know that housing organisations can access grants of up to $20,000 (incl GST) for tailored consulting services (selected from an approved panel) to assist their applications for NHFIC finance?

CHIA Vic has created a new web resource to assist those community housing organisations that are interested in applying for funding via the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC).

NHFIC Professional Advisory Services grants

CHIA is helping the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) deliver lower cost and longer term finance to community housing organisations by coordinating a grant program that funds professional advisory services.

The NHFIC wants to encourage loan applications from registered Community Housing Organisations, including Housing Providers who partner with a Housing Association to take a loan. Grants will be available to fund consultants to help with loan applications, with consultants invited to join a Panel through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process.

CHIA is hosting a NHFIC Professional Advisory Services briefing session on 8 May 8 from 1.30pm to 4pm at CHIA Victoria offices, 1/128 Exhibition St, Melbourne VIC 3000.

This will inform both housing organisations and consultants on the program, and seek input into final program design.

The event will include:

  • information from the State Government on how NHFIC funding aligns with growing the community housing sector
  • a briefing on NHFIC loan applications
  • overview of the Professional Advisory Services grants
  • refreshment break, with networking opportunities
  • community housing workshop: discussing grant eligibility
  • consultant workshop: explaining the Panel membership EOI.

Places are limited, bookings and queries to John Scott or download the flyer for additional information.
