About Housing Australia

Housing Australia’s purpose is to improve housing outcomes by helping more Australians to access affordable, safe and secure housing. Established in 2018 as the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC), Housing Australia is a corporate Commonwealth entity that provides long-term and low-cost finance and capability building assistance to registered community housing providers (CHPs) to support the provision of more social and affordable housing. Housing Australia lends, invests and provides grants to help finance the critical infrastructure and social and affordable housing needed to unlock and accelerate new housing supply. It currently does this through the Affordable Housing Bond Aggregator (AHBA) and National Housing Infrastructure Facility (NHIF). Following the recent passage of the Federal Government’s Housing Legislative Package, Housing Australia will take on additional responsibilities to support delivery of more social and affordable homes for Australians in need, under the new Housing Australia Future Fund. In addition, it will assist in delivering more affordable homes under the National Housing Accord. Housing Australia also supports eligible home buyers by administering the Home Guarantee Scheme that helps them purchase a home sooner. The implementation of these housing programs is supported by Housing Australia’s research, data and analytics capability.
