The Race To 500

Our Social & Affordable Housing Fund (SAHF) developments continue to progress, with six of eight Development Applications approved in the last year.

Early work or construction has commenced on all six sites, with our first sites at Lismore and Goulburn due to be completed and ready for tenants by early 2019.

We are partnering with the NSW Government to provide and manage social and affordable housing, catering to those most in need across the state, through the SAHF.

The SAHF is a key component of the Future Directions for Social Housing in NSW strategy that will result in more social and affordable housing dwellings linked to tailored support, to help households gain independence.

The 500 new dwellings will be constructed over the next two years in eight locations with a focus on seniors and single parent families. The sites are Carlingford, Five Dock, Narellan, Goulburn, Lismore, Springwood, Gosford and Newcastle.
