Housing ACT provides social housing and specialist homelessness funding to meet the needs and circumstances of low income and disadvantaged people. Through strengthening social housing and reducing homelessness, we help alleviate social isolation and build resilience, contributing to a safer, stronger
and more inclusive community – a community where everybody has the opportunity for a bright future regardless of their characteristics, circumstances or background.
Housing ACT is committed to excellence and the highest ethical standards as we focus on client outcomes, respond to individual needs, and steward the public housing portfolio. For tenancy information, including housing assistance, tenancy support or asset management, visit our Services page.
