Growing The Sector (Sector Investment)

Growth Provider EOI Process

The EOI process is aimed to identify suitable Aboriginal Community Housing Providers (ACHPs) who are looking to ‘grow’ their businesses and are ready to work in partnership with the AHO as Growth Providers. Round 1 & 2 of the EOI for Growth providers have now been finalised.

The EOI process allowed the AHO to learn more about the readiness of the sector to be involved in managing more properties.

Twenty-nine applicants are in discussions with the AHO to become Growth Providers and they will enter into formal agreements with the AHO once negotiations are completed. The AHO is committed to encouraging ACHPs to grow and strengthen their capabilities so more AHO properties can be managed by Aboriginal organisations that have a strong cultural understanding of Aboriginal communities and their needs.

Through the Strong Family, Strong Communities Strategy the AHO has committed to transferring 1,500 properties to ACHPs by December 2022.
