SECOND PHASE OF SOCIAL AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING FUND OPENS

12 February 2018

The NSW Government has officially opened the Expressions of Interest for the second phase of its Social and Affordable Housing Fund (SAHF), which will deliver up to 1,200 additional social and affordable homes.

Member for Barwon, Kevin Humphries has called on non-government organisations, landholders and the private sector, to tap into the new fund and deliver better outcomes for Barwon’s most vulnerable. 

“The SAHF was set up with more than $1 billion in seed capital from the Government and the second phase of the Fund demonstrates the commitment to investing in more social and affordable housing.

“Proponents will be asked to put forward proposals that:

Provide tailored support that will improve employment and education prospects for tenants and their households
Provide stability and support for vulnerable people of NSW, with a particular focus on supporting women aged 55 and over. 

“This year, hundreds of homes are going up in cities, regions and rural areas of NSW, funded under the SAHF. 

“I welcome the news which demonstrates the government’s commitment to provide more social and affordable housing to the vulnerable.  With our Communities Plus program, the commencement of Phase 2 will ensure more houses in more locations continues for years to come,” Kevin Humphries said.

“I’d love to see organisations in Barwon look to build consortia and participate in providing housing and supports as part of SAHF 2,” he said.

Proponents can register for an Invitation for Expression of Interest at www.facs.nsw.gov.au/reforms/social-housing/SAHF/Phase2/how-to-get-involved

The closing date for Expressions of Interest applications is 21 March 2018.
