About NRSCH

Vision

Australia’s new National Regulatory System for Community Housing aims to ensure a well governed, well managed and viable national community housing sector that meets the housing needs of tenants and provides assurance for government and investors.

Scope

The National Regulatory System for Community Housing seeks a clear separation between regulatory activities, and state and territory policy and funding activities.

The scope of a Registrar’s functions under the National Regulatory System is limited to regulatory activities.

Policy and funding decisions will continue to be a matter for state, territory and federal governments, which enables localised responses to meet housing need. Visit the pages of individual States & Territories for more information.

Governance

The governance arrangements for the NRSCH are shared by the governments of all participating jurisdictions via housing ministers, Registrars and advisory forums. 

Registration

All interested housing providers seeking to be part of this national system can apply for registration via the Registrar in their state or territory. Specialist housing providers, including indigenous providers, are encouraged to apply. For more information, view the eligibility guideline.
