    Description: This research investigated Social impact investment (SII), which aims to generate and actively measure social and financial returns. There are several promising SII models—including housing supply bonds, property funds, funding social enterprises, social impact bonds and social impact loans. Effective SII requires suppliers of goods and services, intermediaries, suppliers of capital, government and beneficiaries to work together.

    Description: This research examined social impact investment (SII) in social and affordable housing in Australia. It considered US and UK models, together with interviews with government experts, social impact investors and not-for-profit housing providers, to inform the analysis. In Australia, the funding gap between tenants’ capacity to pay and the cost of providing housing is the most significant barrier to SII.
