Housing & Community Services ACT is responsible for the provision of social housing and community services in the Territory.

The organisation allocates, manages and maintains public and community housing properties and coordinates comprehensive support services and community participation programs for its tenants.  It provides support for people who are disadvantaged or experiencing a crisis through a variety of programs, including services targeted at preventing homelessness and assisting people to transit through homelessness into stable housing.

See how you can provide information or get in touch with us without coming into the Housing ACT shopfront.

If you’re a public housing tenant, you might receive a phone call from Housing ACT to check in on your wellbeing and to provide information on the one-off $250 payment for social housing and community housing households. We look forward to supporting you during this time.
