With the election of a new Federal Government and national funding agreements up for renewal, now is the right time to debate, discuss and consider the future of housing assistance in Australia. Over the course of the day, this national conversation will examine the following:

  • Political leadership and the future of housing assistance
  • Current demand for housing assistance in Australia – featuring the latest AHURI research
  • Strategies for increasing the supply of affordable housing
  • Strategies for improving tenancy management and support
  • Contemporary trends in social policy and their relationship to housing assistance

We invite you to join us at the second conference in a new national series of cross-sectoral policy focused events convened by AHURI. The Future of Housing Assistance will be held in Adelaide on Wednesday 19 October 2016.
