What we do
Housing Choices Australia is one of Australia’s largest community housing providers. We build, develop and own a range of housing types for people on lower incomes and people with disability. Working with individuals, families, support agencies, community organisations and governments to meet specific housing needs, our rents are subsidised, based either on a discount to the market rent or as a percentage of household income (capped at 25- 30 per cent).
Community housing is owned or managed by non-government, not-for-profit, registered housing agencies like Housing Choices. We partner with a range of support services and community organisations, enabling us to meet the immediate and longer term needs of our residents, so that they can thrive and maintain long-term tenancies.
Housing Choices is an experienced and award-winning social and affordable housing developer, with a national property portfolio of $1bn and an annual turnover of $80m. We have a highly successful collaborative approach working with a range of private and public stakeholders to realise our mission of increasing our stock of good quality social housing for people on lower incomes and people with disability.
