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

Selina Claxton 2008, Discussion paper, Housing, Research library

Housing authorities across Australia are moving towards a new strategy for increasing housing supply. The strategy is based on the provision of Government capital (either through funding grants or through the transfer of title to public housing properties) which the recipient community housing organisation then uses to leverage private investment. This paper examines how this model has worked in other jurisdictions and raises questions about the future of public housing under this model.
