  1. The construction of social housing pathways across Australia

    Author(s): Abigail Powell; Ariella Meltzer; Chris Martin; Wendy Stone; Edgar Liu; Kathleen Flanagan; Kristy Muir; Selina Tually

    Description: This report examines the role of policy in shaping social housing pathways (i.e. the changing experience of housing by tenants and their households over time and space) through a review of current social housing operational policies. It considers application processes, eligibility criteria, rent, use of premises, tenant-initiated transfers, portfolio management and tenancy management by landlords.

  2. 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.

  3. Housing outcomes after domestic and family violence

    Author(s): Kathleen Flanagan; Hazel Blunden; kylie valentine; Jane Henriette

    Description: This research examined the impact of housing and other support services on safety and wellbeing for families experiencing domestic and family violence. It reviewed the legislative framework, strategies, governance arrangements and major initiatives in each state and territory, together with interviews with key stakeholders and users to better understand integration of support services.

  4. Understanding Specialist Disability Accommodation funding

    Author(s): Andrew Beer; Kathleen Flanagan; Julia Verdouw; Braam Lowies; Elizabeth Hemphill; Gina Zappia

    Description: This study examined the Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) program and the attitudes of industry to investment and participation in that program. It questioned developers, investors, housing providers, prospective tenants and governments on how the SDA program will generate new supply that meets the needs and preferences of people with disability.

  5. A conceptual analysis of social housing as infrastructure

    Author(s): Kathleen Flanagan; Chris Martin; Keith Jacobs; Julie Lawson

    Description: This study into the role of social housing as essential infrastructure assessed evaluation tools and techniques needed to enable investment by government. Cost-benefit analyses and business case preparation provide a means to quantify productivity, while the broader range of societal outcomes also needs to be considered.

  6. Pathways to housing tax reform

    Author(s): Richard Eccleston; Julia Verdouw; Kathleen Flanagan; Neil Warren; Alan Duncan; Rachel Ong; Stephen Whelan; Kadir Atalay

    Description: This research is the final report of the AHURI Inquiry into ‘Pathways to Housing Tax Reform in Australia’. It features real-world modelling and implementation time frames to steer tax settings that progress the efficiency, equity and sustainability of housing tax policy, and also presents meaningful long-term political pathways to achieve these outcomes.

  7. Pathways to state property tax reform

    Author(s): Richard Eccleston; Neil Warren; Julia Verdouw; Kathleen Flanagan

    Description: Reforming state and local government property taxes can contribute to a fairer and more sustainable housing system as well as delivering additional economic and social dividends. This research proposed a nationally coordinated incremental strategy with clearly defined short, medium and long-term objectives, including administrative reforms; a simpler and fairer revenue neutral transfer duty; and replacing transfer duties with a broad-based recurrent property tax.

  8. 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.
