Community Housing Organisations

Applying for funding

The Housing Authority provides social and affordable housing in partnership with community housing organisations and local government.

Funding is provided by the Housing Authority to registered community housing organisations through a number of programs, including Expression of Interest (EOI) and Request for Proposal (RFP) Processes.

Expression of Interest and Request for Proposal Processes

Other funding is also available as a result of State and Government investment in social and affordable housing in Western Australia. With this funding, the Housing Authority announced a series of innovative approaches to the procurement of social and affordable housing, including an expression of interest (EOI) process for development proposals and a number of site specific Requests for Proposals (RFP).

Community Housing Providers may also apply for funding through these EOI and RFP Processes.
