Housing providers

The Aboriginal Housing Office (AHO) provides funding support to Aboriginal Community Housing Providers (ACHP) for the purpose of carrying out operational and management services, including acquisition and construction of properties.

Our approved registered housing providers are listed here.

Under Section 26 of the Aboriginal Housing Act 1998 (NSW)

In order to be eligible to receive funding or assistance through any of our programs, such as NPARIH and Build & Grow, ACHPs need to be registered with the AHO.

 

Aboriginal Cultural Competency Standards

Seven Aboriginal Cultural Competency Standards for self-assessment have been developed through a collaborative process with the community housing sector. The self-assessment process will enable community housing providers to review and improve their cultural competency in relation to these standards.

Developing cultural competency standards within the mainstream community housing sector is a key deliverable of the Community Housing for Aboriginal People 2012-14 Strategy (CHAP).

You can view the Aboriginal Cultural Competency Standards here.

Property Management Transfers

One of the goals under the Future Directions for Social Housing in NSW is to transfer the management of some public housing to Community Housing Providers (CHPs).

Over the next four years, and aligned with Future Directions, the Aboriginal Housing Office (AHO) will undertake a separate procurement process, to select suitable Aboriginal community housing providers (ACHPs) to manage AHO-owned properties across NSW.
