  1. Background paper for Investigative Panel meeting on New and emerging models of tenancy management in remote Indigenous communities

    Author(s): Daphne Habibis; Rhonda Phillips; Julia Verdouw

    Description: This project examines how tenancy management reforms are being implemented in the Northern Territory, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia and the influencing factors in each jurisdiction. By comparing the different ways in which tenancy services are being delivered to Aboriginal people in remote locations, the project aims to establish policy lessons that will inform practice.

  2. 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.

  3. Safe and sound? How funding mix affects homelessness support for Indigenous Australians

    Author(s): Angela Spinney; Daphne Habibis; Sean McNelis

    Description: Indigenous Australians are 14 times more likely to become homeless than other Australians, and their homelessness situations are likely to be more severe. This research examined how the changing mix of government and non-government, direct and indirect funding influences the provision of services to Indigenous Australians and its outcomes.

  5. Reviewing changes to housing management on remote Indigenous communities

    Author(s): Daphne Habibis; Rhonda Phillips; Angela Spinney; Peter Phibbs; Brendan Churchill

    Description: This research investigated how well tenancy management arrangements are working under the National Partnership Agreement on Remote Indigenous Housing (NPARIH); the appropriateness and effectiveness of the tenancy management policy and service delivery approaches; and the efficiency and value for money of the service delivery models. It also identified policy and practice lessons gained from the NPARIH experience. It is not a review of NPARIH itself, and includes some consideration of non-NPARIH communities.

  7. Individualised housing assistance: findings and policy options

    Author(s): Keith Jacobs; Kath Hulse; Wendy Stone; Ilan Wiesel

    Description: This Inquiry found that, due to shortages of affordable accommodation, it is difficult for low-income households to exercise choice in the private rental market, and that competition and consumer choice in housing assistance depends on an increase in affordable housing supply.
