Churches Housing acknowledges the generous funding received from the Department of Communities and Justice, Sector Development Program. As a peak body the government recognises the importance of our role in developing opportunities in the sector.
Churches Housing advocates at all levels of government for effective policy change, the development of incentives for investment and the development of partnerships between church and government as well as other sectors such as business and finance. The church sector has enormous capacity to use land in ways that will benefit the local community, such as the provision of social and affordable rental housing, but will often require a partnership with government to ensure that projects are financially viable.
