Affordable Housing Solutions


Collaborative approach to stock transfer

Following the Commonwealth Games in 2006, the Victorian Government put to tender the transfer of 82 dwellings from the athletes' village.

AHS facilitated the formation of a consortium between Port Phillip Housing Association, Loddon Mallee Housing Services and the Disability Housing Trust, which won the tender.

The consortium approach allowed Loddon Mallee Housing Services to deliver an additional 61 units of housing across Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong in regional Victoria. 

The bid was financially underpinned by the asset transfer from the Victorian Government to the Port Phillip Housing Association.

The Disability Housing Trust purchased nomination rights, which increased the number of homes created by the project.

Key innovation:

Brokering of partnerships between housing associations and the establishment of an efficient financing mechanism that maximised the affordable housing outcomes for the state government.
