AHURI is pleased to confirm two new projects have commenced as part of the National Cities Research Program, with a focus on urban climate change and the potential for First Nations people to benefit urban policy development.
New AHURI research, ‘Alternative housing models for precariously housed older Australians’, is exploring the potential of alternative housing models to increase the supply of affordable housing for older Australians and the role alternative financing schemes could play in expanding those options.
As part of its 2022 Federal Election campaign, the Australian Labor Party (ALP) has made a number of election commitments to housing and homelessness issues across Australia.
In March 2022, the major Australian media organisation, Are Media, along with a coalition of women's sector groups, launched ‘Unhoused’, a pre-election advocacy campaign calling for increased funding to address a national crisis that sees 49,000 Australian women homeless.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated concerns about housing affordability and access to services for people living in regional Australia, new AHURI research reveals.
