Resilient Sydney Forum: Partnering with Community Housing Providers

On 22 October 2021, an online forum was held as part of the Resilient Sydney Affordable and Diverse Housing project. 

It focussed on metropolitan councils working with community housing providers (CHPs), and how CHPs can assist councils to provide and manage affordable housing through the planning system.  

The forum was facilitated by Ms Barone, CEO, City of Sydney and co-hosted by Community Housing Industry Association (CHIA) NSW. It targeted to senior council officers and CEOs of CHPs and was attended by 28 metropolitan councils and 19 CHPs with 86 participants in total. 

Several affordable housing projects were presented, where CHPs have attracted millions of dollars of low-cost finance through the National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation to local and often affordable housing projects.
