In March 2017, as part of stage one, five partners from the private and not-for-profit sectors were selected to deliver 2200 homes in metropolitan and regional NSW.

The second stage will provide more homes to those in need of social housing and ensure residents are connected to transport, jobs, education and tailored support services.

The NSW Government has committed to a target of 3400 new social and affordable dwellings through the $1.1 billion fund.

Minister for Social Housing Pru Goward said an innovative approach was needed to address the number of people experiencing crisis or housing stress.

“By embracing innovative and collaborative approaches by the non-government and private sectors to provide holistic housing services, we are helping people break the cycle of disadvantage and work towards greater independence,” Ms Goward said.
