  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 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.

  3. Inquiry into increasing affordable housing supply: Evidence-based principles and strategies for Australian policy and practice

    Author(s): Nicole Gurran; Steven Rowley; Vivienne Milligan; Bill Randolph; Peter Phibbs; Catherine Gilbert; Amity James; Laurence Troy; Ryan van den Nouwelant

    Description: This study examined the range of strategies and initiatives governments have used to leverage affordable housing supply across the continuum of housing needs (i.e. from social housing to affordable rental and home ownership) in a constrained funding and increasingly market driven context across a range of different jurisdictions and markets.

  4. Paying for affordable housing in different market contexts

    Author(s): Bill Randolph; Laurence Troy; Vivienne Milligan; Ryan van den Nouwelant

    Description: This study analysed recently completed affordable housing developments across Australia to ascertain how affordable housing project costs, revenues and subsidies interact. The research reveals the diverse funding arrangements adopted by providers, which have resulted in affordable housing project outcomes being driven by funding opportunities rather than by defined housing needs, and identified six key lessons about financing affordable housing.

  5. Government led innovations in affordable housing delivery

    Author(s): Steven Rowley; Amity James; Peter Phibbs; Ryan van den Nouwelant; Laurence Troy

    Description: This project examined state government-led innovations in affordable housing through analysis of two state-level strategies and two state-level programs. The research shows effective strategies and programs rely on strong political leadership; adopt a whole-of-housing industry approach to consultation and implementation; communicate objectives effectively to all stakeholders; are resilient to changes of government; and are best run from a central agency with a flexible organisational structure that can respond quickly to opportunities.
