Going for growth: the pros and cons of using community housing associations to increase housing supply

Population Housing Australia

Growing social housing supply by leveraging private investment into community housing associations is an increasingly popular option for state governments looking to generate funding for housing. This policy paper looks at the 'growth provider' model as used in Australia and in the United Kingdom, and in particular at the impact on very low income households and people with complex needs. It concludes that there is a potential for these tenants to be excluded from housing developed under a 'growth provider' framework.
