What we do

The Housing Authority is an affordable housing provider, operating in land development, housing construction and property management. The agency delivers quality housing that people can afford, and provides people with opportunities to buy a home.

Housing works in partnership within the private, government and not-for-profit sectors to supply affordable homes. In many cases, the agency provides housing for people who would otherwise struggle to rent or buy.

The Housing Authority also assists with housing finance through its Keystart Home Loans business, and provides rental assistance options for people in need.
