This is the final report of a project that examines the impact of the South Australian Government’s announced program of public housing stock transfers to the community sector on local governments.

The community housing sector in Australia is defined as not-for-profit housing and is made up of both larger and smaller organisations. Some operate on a business-first model, while others remain small scale.

The project has been funded by the Local Government Research and Development Scheme (LGRDS) and was developed to address five specific goals:

- Explore alternative housing transfer models to those proposed by the South Australian Government;

- Understand the fiscal impacts on councils of the proposed transfer;

- Review the impact of transfers on urban regeneration potential;

- Consider social outcomes, including the impact on community governance and capacity within social housing; and,

- Determine how the transfer aligns with broader South Australian Government priorities and the financial sustainability of local government in this State.
