Description: This study explores how social impact investment (SII) has been used for housing and homelessness objectives internationally; examines three case studies where SII has been used in Australia; and considers finance structures, such as impact investment mutual funds, that would enable social impact investors to create a portfolio of affordable housing securities that can balance financial and social return.
