Social housing assistance focuses on providing adequate, affordable and accessible housing targeted to those in greatest need, delivered cost-effectively and in coordination with support services where required. Social housing assistance is provided on a long or short-term basis.

Long-term social housing assistance includes public rental accommodation, community-managed housing in Director-owned properties and community-owned stock for designated client groups and rental accommodation for low income Victorians with identified support needs. Long-term public rental housing also includes movable units.

In recent years, housing assistance has been increasingly targeted to people in greatest need. Targeting to high need groups has impacts in terms of stock turnover and costs.

Short-term social housing is provided to Victoria’s homeless individuals and families. Clients are assisted under the Crisis Supported Accommodation and Transitional Housing Management programs.
