Statement on Federal Government’s widening of the NHIF

The National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) welcomes the registration of the updated Investment Mandate to enable Federal Government widening the remit of the National Housing Infrastructure Facility (NHIF), making up to $575 million available to invest in new social and affordable housing projects in addition to financing housing-enabling infrastructure.

Under the NHIF social and affordable housing finance facility (NHIF SAH), NHFIC will be able to provide concessional loans and grants to eligible proponents to support the provision of new social and affordable housing.

Further details about the expanded NHIF will be available in December 2022.
