The scheme streamlines the procurement process and create partnerships that will increase the supply of affordable housing to households with very low, low and moderate incomes - usually at no more than 30% of their income.
This scheme was established by Landcom, the NSW Government’s development organisation to help deliver affordable housing.
Range of services
The scheme covers the management and construction of affordable housing in different regions across NSW.
The affordable housing providers (or community housing providers) on the scheme are all registered and meet the requirements of the National Registration System.
This scheme provides further information on their:
- capability as managers or also whether they construct/develop affordable housing
- regions where they are active
- scale of built form
- housing types
- client specialisations
- focus or intentions
- level of experience
- current portfolio.
The scheme allows any private or government organisation wishing to procure affordable housing development or management services to easily find providers active in their area. It allows them to check that the scale or type of development matches their needs.
The scheme also includes information about the intended future scope of each community housing provider (CHP). This makes it easier to find potential partners. It will allow prospective initiators of affordable housing to narrow the invitation to tender or expression of interest to relevant parties. This is expected to save time and money and improve housing outcomes.
Insurance and financial matters are considered during the National Registration process and are therefore not duplicated here.
It will be up to all parties to do their own due diligence as they see fit.
