  1. Social housing as infrastructure: rationale, prioritisation and investment pathway

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Todd Denham; Jago Dodson; Kathleen Flanagan; Keith Jacobs; Chris Martin; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Hal Pawson; Laurence Troy

    Description: Considering social housing as infrastructure may improve investment in the sector, as well as increase transparency and efficiency in project appraisal and funding prioritisation. It explored different methods of calculating the benefits of social housing relative to cost, including the savings that might accrue in other areas of government expenditure. The research also modelled ways to best finance and fund social housing, revealing that a capital investment strategy supplemented by efficient financing is substantially more cost-effective than a commercially financed model reliant on an operating subsidy.

  2. Social housing legal responses to crime and anti-social behaviour: impacts on vulnerable families

    Author(s): Chris Martin; Daphne Habibis; Lucinda Burns; Hal Pawson

    Description: This research reviewed social housing tenancies law and policies in five jurisdictions, and national policy principles and frameworks relating to four types of vulnerable people: women affected by domestic violence; children; Indigenous persons; and people affected by alcohol and other drugs. Social housing policy in Australia targets assistance to households with low incomes and complex support needs and seeks to give social landlords a role in relation to crime and noncriminal anti-social behaviour.

  3. Social housing as infrastructure: an investment pathway

    Author(s): Julie Lawson; Hal Pawson; Laurence Troy; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Carrie Hamilton

    Description: This research modelled five alternative pathways to funding social housing and found the ‘capital grant’ model, supplemented by efficient financing, provides the most cost effective model for Australia. The research also established the current and future unmet need for social housing in different parts of Australia.

  4. The changing institutions of private rental housing: an international review

    Author(s): Chris Martin; Kath Hulse; Hal Pawson

    Description: This study investigated the private rental sector policy settings and institutions relevant to Australia in 10 countries in Australasia, Europe and North America, with a detailed review of the sectors in Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom and United States. The research investigated the international experience of housing and impact of broader economic systems, financial settings, landlord and tenancy structures and regulation in the reference countries.

  5. Developing the scale and capacity of Australia's affordable housing industry

    Author(s): Vivienne Milligan; Hal Pawson; Rhonda Phillips; Chris Martin

    Description: This study investigated the capacity constraints affecting Australia’s affordable housing industry, which is critical to addressing the housing needs of low-income Australians. Industry stability and growth relies on government policy continuity and directional clarity; subsidies being adequate, appropriate and assured; and the potential contribution of specialist institutions such as a financial intermediary to access to low-cost funds to support key industry requirements.

  6. Recent housing transfer experience in Australia: implications for affordable housing industry development

    Author(s): Hal Pawson; Chris Martin; Kathleen Flanagan; Rhonda Phillips

    Description: Focusing primarily on public housing transfers in Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania, this Inquiry analysed the associated processes and frameworks to reveal the lessons learned. The case studies reveal aspects of transfer practices such as capturing Rent Assistance-enhanced revenues; the transfer of ‘management’ rather than freehold title; and the absence of a role for tenants. Financial modelling indicated that management transfers, where community housing providers are assured of cash flow from rents, may be a viable means for addressing moderate maintenance backlogs, enhancing community development and modestly expanding affordable housing portfolios.
