A number of initiatives will support the implementation of the social housing growth.
Victorian Housing Register
Vulnerable Victorians can apply for long-term housing assistance through the Victorian Housing Register, which manages all public and community housing waiting lists.
The Victoria Housing Register provides a fair and easy way for people to access a range of social housing options, regardless of preference for public or community housing.
It will mean Victorians in need will only have to register once rather than put their name down with every agency. This is a partnership arrangement between the government and the community housing and homelessness sectors.
Community Housing Allocations Framework
Consultation on the Community Housing Allocations Framework for the Victorian Housing Register closed on 15 September 2017. The response to sector feedback is currently being prepared.
To find out more, see the Victorian Housing Register page of the Funded Agency Channel.
Victorian Property Fund
The Victorian Property Fund (VPF) is a trust fund administered by Consumer Affairs Victoria which collects interest from Estate Agent Trust funds and other sources.
The Fund makes grants to support a range of programs which include housing assistance for disadvantaged Victorians and environmentally sustainable housing.
