HousingFirst has strong relationships with federal, state and local government departments.

We have partnered with all levels of government to deliver high quality affordable housing for people on low incomes. Projects have included the urban renewal of a former public housing estate in Ashwood – a project that increased the number of available affordable homes and, at the time, was the largest affordable housing development undertaken by a not-for-profit housing association. The Ashwood Chadstone Gateway Project was shortlisted as a 2014 finalist for the national Property Council Australia Awards in the category of Best Residential Development. It was the first time a community housing project had been shortlisted.

Our government partners include:

  • Commonwealth Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs
  • Victorian Office of Housing, Department of Human Services
  • Major Projects Victoria
