The Victorian Government, in partnership with the community housing sector, is developing the Victorian Housing Register to make it easier for people to access housing options. The Housing Register will join public housing and community housing waiting lists together to create a single register for people to apply for social housing. A client will only have to apply for housing once, using a consistent housing application form and eligibility policy, which is currently being developed.
There will be a new online form developed to allow services and their clients to access the register and training will be provided to relevant organisations. For more information about the development of the Housing Register, see DHHS’s May Communique.
