Program Objectives

The Social Housing Accelerator Fund (SHAF) is open to all registered CHPs (including those that are eligible to register) and aims to encourage regional and smaller providers, who may not have had the opportunity or capacity to participate in large-scale tenders, to activate their financial and other resources to initiate projects.

The Common Programs’ objectives are to:

  • Increase the supply of housing by leveraging Government funds with CHPs’ access to a range of financial and non-financial resources.
  • Encourage innovative tenancy and property proposals that enhance tenants’ social housing outcomes using the strong partnerships that CHPs have in their communities and networks.
  • Ensure community housing sector diversity by encouraging regional and smaller scale CHPs to participate in the program.
  • Secure the longer-term viability of the community housing sector by increasing the size and value of the CHP owned portfolio.
