10-Year Strategy for Social and Affordable Housing

The 10-Year Strategy for Social and Affordable Housing sets a vision for all Victorians to have access to safe, affordable and appropriate housing in the right locations.

Homes Victoria is continuing to build more homes for more Victorians through the $5.3 billion Big Housing Build. The 10-year strategy builds on this record investment, bringing together reform and action to deliver a social and affordable housing system that is efficient, collaborative and sustainable for generations to come.

Feedback from the sector, community and Victorians with lived experience has helped shape this strategy, which places people at the centre. More information on the outcomes from our engagement program can be found below.

The 10-Year Strategy has been delayed as we are working with the Federal Government to progress its election commitments including the delivery of more social and affordable housing through the Housing Australia Future Fund.

The Minister for Housing launched a discussion paper to support the public and stakeholders to make informed contributions to the development of the strategy.
